MS#165. The WWW and Existential Threats, 2023
Subjects: Computer Science, Politics
Abstract: In 1994 we had high hopes for the newly-founded World Wide Web, as an antidote to global fears. Now, 30 years later, not so much. Here, I update this initial optimism with a litany of fears of existential threats, old and new and conclude with a new optimism.
