Neal Stephenson setting spoilers // fate of the Internet
Most convincing vision of the Internet was in Neal Stephenson books (more than one).
1. We basically start like things are now;
2. Some rich guy open sources automation of creating fake news;
3. No one accesses the Internet without news curators. And eg. Maps would display radically different things depending on your beliefs. (like Crimea but more - Crimea is Russian or Ukrainian on Internet maps depending on where you access them)
