The Future of Knowledge: Gatekeepers in a Post-Scarcity World


The age of knowledge scarcity is over. 


With the advent of the internet and advancements in technology, information is now readily available to anyone with an internet connection. But as the old saying goes, "with great power comes great responsibility." As we navigate this new world of endless information, it's important to remember that the role of gatekeepers is not gone, it's just changed.

In the early days of the internet, search results were raw and unfiltered. Academia was the primary source of information, and it was up to the individual to sift through and make sense of it all. But as search engines emerged, they brought with them a new form of gatekeeping. They filtered and suggested content based on our history and preferences, making it easier for us to find the information we needed. But as we've seen in recent years, that system has failed.

So what's next? 

I suggest that there will always be gatekeepers, but they will take on a different form. As the world continues to evolve and technology advances, we must adapt and find new ways to filter and curate information. 

It's up to us to create a system that is fair and unbiased, one that serves the needs of all.

Three bullet guide for the future:


  1. The age of knowledge scarcity is over but the role of gatekeepers is not gone, it's just changed.
  2. We must adapt and find new ways to filter and curate information for a fair and unbiased system.
  3. It's up to us to create a system that serves the needs of all.
