Serious question, why do we give so much power to these tech firms such as Google, when really the solution is decentralization. We have some solutions for money with bitcoin, but there still doesn’t seem to be a viable alternative with a search engine that is decentralized?

    Blockchain is a meme. It is the same buzzword lalaland meme that is AI in phone software these days.

    LokiNet and Adamant are probably the only serious attempts I have seen in a while, and even they did not get me interested to check them out. If something does not get me tingly in the sack, it is not worth.

        The kind of BS sold to people is hilarious. Every phone has some AI thing, but the only phones with AI NPU chips initially were from Huawei and Apple. Qualcomm followed through years later, and the OEMs that used Qualcomm never really utilised the NPU while calling their features AI.

        People fell hard for the AI meme without knowing what it is. But then, what do people even know?

      I disagree blockchain technology shouldn’t be underestimated

        Considering a technology good means society does not make a joke out of it. Currently, this is not the case.
