I’m currently teaching web dev and my students spoke about how the internet is essentially dying year over year. Bots are everywhere, enshittification of sites and SEOs/algorithms running everything into the ground. Over-saturation of influencers and content overexposure.
There’s multiple articles on HN every week that talk about how the good websites are gone or hard to find and apps are becoming a better face for companies than sites. Tiktok being used for search more than Google by the young demographics.
I’ve also thought about how AI is going to spit out massive amounts of cheap content and information that will just confuse/annoy people. You won’t know what to believe and you’ll have to make a huge effort just to figure out if what you’re reading wasn’t puked out by some AI. AI art and music is already starting to make its way onto Spotify and it all sounds awful. We also spoke about how the internet will eventually bog down and a large group of people will essentially “leave” it. It also matches up with the Lindy effect.

A gigantic trove of passwords has been released by bad actors, and there's a chance that yours is on there.
According to Troy Hunt, the man behind the breach notification site "Have I Been Pwned" — which allows users to look up your email and see if and where your passwords and other user information have been compromised — it's one of the largest collections of breached data he's ever seen appear online.
The cache of files, dubbed "Naz.API," contains more than 71 million email addresses and 100 million passwords. Thus far, more than 400,000 Have I Been Pwned (HIBP) subscribers have been impacted.
The researcher said in his blog post that more than 65 percent of the email addresses in the breach had already been seen before in other HIBP datasets. This suggests, Hunt explained, that although a majority of the stolen data has already been floating around, over a third of it appears to be newly harvested.
"When a third of the email addresses have never been seen before, that's statistically significant," he wrote. "This isn't just the usual collection of repurposed lists wrapped up
with a brand-new bow on it and passed off as the next big thing; it's a significant volume of new data."
