    I think this is an interesting one. I think one of the most obvious self serving shifts on the web came from Google. When it lacked the ability to meaningfully parse out natural language to feed it's knowledge graph there was a big push to get everyone onto microformats. Now that it has the tech to skip that the push is gone, leaving anyone else without that muscle out in the cold. Just one more aspect of the web being weaponized for material gain I guess, and a relatively small transgression in the larger scheme of things.
