> And so here we are in 2017. How's it going, Mr Williams?
> "I think the internet is broken," he says. He has believed this for a few years, actually. But things are getting worse. "And it's a lot more obvious to a lot of people that it's broken."
> "I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place," Williams says. "I was wrong about that."
> The trouble with the internet, Williams says, is that it rewards extremes. Say you're driving down the road and see a car crash. Of course you look. Everyone looks. The internet interprets behaviour like this to mean everyone is asking for car crashes, so it tries to supply them.
