2020s hackers: My dream is to disconnect all of my devices from the internet.
For me, the dream is still to connect all of MY devices to the 'net, and disconnect any corporate owned devices from the 'net :D
@eldaking It's time for another Good Idea Bad Idea.
Good Idea: Connecting devices to the Internet.
Bad Idea: Connecting devices to their corporate overlords by way of the Internet so they can deliver less than half a product that starves the cat when they have technical difficulties.
@eldaking My dream is to create a new internet that is the internet of 1999 and disallows all these dangerous modern devices and companies from it :V
@eldaking To be fair none of us wanted to connect to the internet the way it is now, and I'm pruddy sure we all hated the slip Interface we had to use to get there, which should have been a sign... The internet is exactly what we hoped it wouldn't be.
@ben @sydneyfalk @eldaking Well I mean we already have the internet split across national borders which is probably why 7 was chosen (7 continents). Already we see companies that bow down the authoritarian rule for money have no problem, but protesters are silenced. 2040 may be a real disappointment of the potential of interconnection and the lofty dreams from the early days of the net.

* all root DNS are under US control (so we can consider non-national control as a US control).
* Australian internet regulation is a bit hard since about a decade too and block some foreign sites.
* Iran have a control of what can go in/out of the country internet connection network.
* French provider patch their DNS to avoid noobs to access some sites too.
2008: I got my Chumby to work with Pandora
2022: help my Google Hub won't stop playing Happy Anniversary Baby every time I have a calendar appointment coming up
@eldaking Yep, it wasn’t as nearly cool as we thought, although I’d say that was primarily because we handed over control to surveillance capitalists.
