The Internet Archive has concocted a thought experiment to celebrate its 25 th remembrance, imagining how the web might look another 25 years from now. Paste a site’s URL into the Wayforward Machine and you’ll recognize a account of that sheet covered in pop-ups. The themes include one reading “Classified content. The website you are trying to access features information that the owner( s) have opted to restrict to users that has not been able to shared their personal information.”
Another, in Orwellian wording, says: “This site contains information that is currently classified as Thought Crime in your region.” The Internet Archive appointed a subsite that features a timeline of fictional alters, including a ordinance countenancing corporations to copyright points, leading to Wikipedia moving to the Dark Web, which would be pretty incredible.
