What is your opinion on futurism and merging with AI /g/?

Will technology advance at such a rate that we will be able to upload our minds to a computer? Will we be able to be immortal through technology? Or will this never happen?

Every year the state of technology continues to regress

Every year the state of technology continues to regress to more primitive forms while increasing in complexity.

In the late 1990s we saw an explosion of interesting technology that could be used by the average man.
one man teams in the time frame of 1998 ~ 2005 where creating software left and right.

Starting in 2007 companies started to invest in (social media) aka state sponsored spying programs.
Forums started to die (honestly, most deserved it for putting control freaks in charge of moderation).

Sites that would allow users to edit their pages HTML turned off that feature.
Video games started to disallow their players from hosting their own game servers.

Search engines started to be targeted and forced to change their results.

Youtube allowed gameplay videos to be monetized, driving the creation of brain dead content for children.

Websites use click bait with impunity.

By 2015 it felt like the hacker/troll culture was dead because new users who come onto the internet are pulled into some social media site where they only communicate with people who are afraid of saying anything off color due to their name being associated with their account.

Google adjusted their comment system to favor comments from celebrities over other users.

2017 Websites, that pretended to be about free speech, start to openly censor content, the public is to stupid to care.

By 2020 the nightmare of the internet becoming day time TV will become real.

Nowhere is free of this. Find an archive of old /g/ and compare.
