    Default Peak Internet?

    Has the world reached "peak internet"? If not why not? Is it something its possible to reach?
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    No it has not. Much of Africa is still without smartphones / laptops. It is possible to reach peak Internet because in the future we will use up many resources such as rare earth metals, electricity, and internet bandwidth and those limiting factors will prevent the internet from growing exponentially as it has been for the last 20 years.

    Well...that's kind of ...good news.

    I don't like the idea of more and more internet (because it means less and less of our attention is focused on reality).
