I'd be thrilled if you are correct and this comes to pass! Nostalgia for the strange, janky, and often wonderful older internet has a firm hold of me. I miss the experimentation of the Geocites era and how you could see the human fingerprints on most pages you loaded. Much of the magic arose from the sheer novelty of the web-- the shape of this strange, new beast wasn't yet clear. In some ways, the recent advancements in AI feel similar. There's a huge amount of potential there, everybody's trying to figure out how apply it, and if accesible tools are put in the hands of individuals, I'm similarly optimistic that we will see a new wave of personal creativity.
