    It's been dying for 15 years now. Dead internet theory is not a theory anymore, it's blatantly obvious.
    For people individually, I think that finding smaller, closed places on discord or similar instead of using social media or big forums like reddit is the most obvious choice, but not everyone like discord that much including me.
    Otherwise it's just to disconnect and do something better with your life. Maybe it's better to step off the internet and accept that the golden age is over.

      Dead Internet Theory is the biggest cope of the last decade. It's literal nonsense from zoomer morons who think "the Internet" is synonymous with Twatter.
      The majority of people online are not bots, they are genuinely that stupid.

        It's legitimately both. There's a lot of bots AND there is a huge influx of pajeets and SEAtrash on the internet in the past decade.

        Botting most sites used to be trivial and there’s clear incentives to do so, whether you’re a state actor bombarding comments sections to steer public opinion or some random gay scalping Nikes. It’s become more difficult in recent years to do this at scale but until we have widespread hardware attestation (yes it’s coming, it’s only a matter of time before all major sites require it) the dead internet theory is very much real

      It's metaphorically comparing internet chaos to biodiversity, and centralizing services as plantations. It's a short read, try to be less jaded anon.

        What's wrong with plantations?

            No, because there's nothing wrong with plantations. They serve the needs of large numbers of people.

          >of course for a plantation owner, diversity is a bug, not a feature. Farrell and Berjon make intriguing use of this metaphor. Their essay opens with an account of the notion of “scientific forestry” took hold in late 18th century Prussia and Saxony when officials began to rearrange their complex, diverse forests into straight rows of single-species trees: “Owners no longer relied on skilled local foresters to manage forests. They were replaced with lower-skilled labourers following basic algorithmic instructions to keep the monocrop tidy, the undergrowth bare.”
          >You can guess how this panned out. The first felling of the tidy trees yielded vast profits. Fresh trees were then planted, but were attacked by pests and disease. “The first magnificent bounty,” write Farrell and Berjon, “had not been the beginning of endless riches, but a one-off harvesting of millennia of soil wealth built up by biodiversity and symbiosis. Complexity was the goose that laid golden eggs, and she had been slaughtered.” As we Irish discovered in the great famine of 1845-49, monocultures are generally not a good idea and we abandon biodiversity at our peril.
          That's the argument given. They imply that we are at the cusp of the profit and disease in the metaphor.

            Nope. They are using the metaphor of forest management to illustrate the consequences of relying too heavily on a single solution or approach, and the potential negative outcomes when diversity is overlooked.

      I havent checked out usenet or anything but all TOR sites glow like frick, are dead, or are full of morons. I think you'd have better luck on just small clearnet forums.

      I can't connect to I2P behind my router and VPN

        you can absolutely connect to i2p from behind a VPN if you're not moronic.
        It Also has hole punching capabilities. But it's best if you don't use a VPN and open a port on your router to contribute to the network.

    Internet is dead and will stay dead.
    The future is state-owned and/or corporate-owned Intranet. You will not be happy, but you will pretend to be. Lest you would be kicked out of the Intranet you subscribed to.

      Yes. To buy a subscription to Google, or Amazon's Intranet.
      Then, you'll ba able to come back home to lurk your new safe and secure "Internet2.0".
      Until the point when you will commit a blunder and get banned from it for your non-standard behavior. Then, you'll be truly fricked.

    The idea of "rewilding" the Internet refers to the notion that it has become overly commercialized, controlled, and homogenized, and that it needs to return to its more natural, decentralized, and diverse state. This perspective suggests that the Internet, like wild ecosystems, should be allowed to evolve organically, with less interference from governments, corporations, and dominant platforms. Some proponents of this view believe that this could lead to greater innovation, creativity, and freedom, as well as a more equitable distribution of resources and opportunities.
