1984 vs 2021

by Shun Kakinoki · Sep 01, 2021


Somewhat, it kind of feels like it's 1984. Ads tracking is a mess. Websites are full of cookies and trackers. Google knows more about you than yourself. Censorship by big tech companies is a really controversial topic.

Yet, somehow, web3 and crypto technology has emerged to a place that it seems like it can be a counter peg toward the excessive centralization. 1984 feels like it's somewhat on the verge of escape velocity due to cryptographic and distributed technology, with entire nations of people dependent on it. It feels like we are on a tipping point.

It feels like it is 2021.
