The problem with media as we know it: we will get flooded with poor content.

Summaries of of summaries of Ai generated reports with little way to cut through the noise. We will need more spaces like cbx, hackernews, and Reddit to have human interaction for crowd curated content. Our algorithms will also need to adopt to an internet with 99.99% trash.

Ai is great tool, but unfortunately the speed at which you can make coherent content is a side effect we are just beginning to see.
