Ask HN: Imagine a Post Pandemic World, How Internet Use Will Evolve?

I ask myself this, because I believe that the lockdown will permanently change our psychology and our way of dealing with everyday life, and since the internet and services will forever play a fundamental role in our society, I am trying to understand how the relationship between man and services will evolve.

For example, what do you think will be the Fundamental Applications for a Post-Pandemic World?

I believe that P2P, decentralization, cryptography and virtual reality will create a new universe of services that will become more and more present.

But this is just an assumption. What do you think?

If anything it will be the opposite. All you mentioned is a concern of a very small part of the population.

I believe that in this regard we will be seeing more control and centralization from governments in order to try to predict/prevent future occurrences.

I fully support your thinking, and I believe that the high number of restrictions will create as a consequence a greater number of distrustful people who will suffer greatly from the controls and will look for alternatives to feel more protected and free. I mean as a feeling, even placebo, of having full control and not being controlled.

Of course there will be those who will not take care of these options and will not look for them.

But now more than ever there is a human need to support the growth of these services, at least I think, to ensure a safe area and a private space for anyone.
