Over time, the internet becomes increasingly average: incorrect information cancels out factual information, wisdom cancels out opinion and user-generated-content cancels out content.
For a given web search you have a
(correct things/(incorrect things + correct things)) x 100 percent chance of finding something correct.
- Eventually the internet will represent the most average person in the world.
- We rely on the internet to make all of our decisions.
The internet pushes and pulls us all towards average.
From a mathematical perspective, this is good for 3.3 billion people.
