Scaling the Internet and Disrupting the Disrupters. The Web is about to be turned upside down by the Distributed web where Content and Authenticity will compete on an even field outside of the filter controls applied by the dominant players Of Alphabet ( Google) Face Book, Amazon etc and their desperately old Fashioned Server Based Model.
Distribution of Web Traffic is impossibly concentrated within the very top 1 millionth of one percent of The Top 100 websites there are in excess of One Billion Websites and The top 10,000,000 of those ( Ten Million) represent the Top 1% of websites.

Watts up with That, Off Guardian, and Claes Johnson all have a page view counter on their home pages and the Rankings are obtainable by such online tools as Alexis.It’s not meant to be scientifically Statistically Accurate but a Ball Park To get the idea across of how dominated the Internet is through Concentration of Power into the Big 100. The Distributed WEB of SWARM and IPFS and Zero.net.io will change all of that in the next Few years, the Disrupters will become the disrupted, does anyone still remember MySpace or Friends reunited?
