I recently discovered this prargraph that I wrote about 15 years ago. I was prescient:
The milieu of information sources is further complicated by the fact that the hardware and software necessary to publish to the Internet is available on even the most modest computer systems in use today, and that connections to the Internet are ubiquitous and cheap. In a matter of minutes, anyone with access to a computer and an Internet connection can publish anything he or she wants on the Internet. Such capacity allows citizens to from political networks, business to publish information for employees and customers, educators to publish for colleagues and students, and charlatans to do what they do.
