Dark Forest of the Internet is an exciting idea on the further development of the internet. However, it is also in opposition to the IndieWeb, as what you write on your blog is public. On the other side, I notice the trend that status updates inside a family are done more and more inside private channels, so I think this theory has its merits.

Moreover, this is the second time this week that I stumble over the name Liu Cixin. It looks like I need to put The Three Body Problem onto my reading list.
