The #web is like a virtual city. Each website is a building. Sometimes you see suburban homes, and at other times, offices and storefronts.

Offices => company sites
Storefronts => online stores
Houses => personal sites

Compare the web with your hometown.

Where are the mom-and-pop shops? How come every other site is just an advertisement or billboard? And, most importantly, why don't most people have a house?

Static hosting is pretty much free. Why do most web-inhabitants just consume (youtube, twitter, etc.)?

Consuming is a passive process, creating is an active process. It takes considerable amount of time and effort to create something. After their $DAYJOB, they are less likely to be creative, especially in low income areas, where most are looking for some cheap entertainment.

`Twitter`: We have seen enough. Echo chambers, trolls, misinformation campaigns etc. (Oh! Don't forget the start of this year!)
With presumably the biggest free speech experiment, is this what we hoped or expected to see? If we have seen betterment for the world, we have also been able to see its limit.
