πŸ“‘ Is Google Dying? Or Did the Web Grow Up?

Bookmarked Is Google Dying? Or Did the Web Grow Up? by Charlie Warzel (theatlantic.com)

One of the most-used tools on the internet is not what it used to be.

Charlie Warzel takes a dive into the current status of Google Search. He talks about the way in which it has become bloated by advertising and move to AI driven results.

In theory, we crave authoritative information, but authoritative information can be dry and boring. It reads more like a government form or a textbook than a novel. The internet that many people know and love is the oppositeβ€”it is messy, chaotic, unpredictable. It is exhausting, unending, and always a little bit dangerous. It is profoundly human.

For me to suggest that Google is ‘dying’ treats it as a unique entity. As Warzel suggests, “Google has rewired us, transforming the way that we evaluate, process, access, and even conceive of information.” With this being so, maybe we have all just changed?
