The Internet industry has not been doing well recently. Not only is the business not very good, but the performance in the capital market is also very bad. Investors in the Internet sector are constantly rubbed by the market. The painful experience of "losing cars early, losing houses late, and blowing up their positions as soon as they fall asleep" has forced the fanatical believers of the Chinese concept into "Zhonggai". "Pills" lead the way party. From the much-anticipated "horse hoof disease in the spring breeze, one day tolls the world's bell" to today's anxiety and mixed reviews, I actually feel that the change in the logic behind the Internet sector is neither a loss of morality nor a distortion of human nature, but a market logic. The natural operation has come here.
At this time, I am thinking about what the Internet has brought us and what it means to us. First of all, we need to make it clear that the Internet is a dragon slaying boy, but it has never been a public welfare dragon slaying. There is no point in killing a dragon if it is not for the purpose of becoming a dragon. The Internet is, after all, part of business. As long as it is business, there is no escape from the logic of doing business. The logic of business is to buy low and sell high, and business is about supply and demand, but at the stage when the Internet has not yet appeared, information is physically separated by space, and the wealth password of information asymmetry is firmly in the hands of merchants.
The fragmentation and high profits exist in reality at the same time, so the merchant with the final interpretation right becomes the only God of the buyer and the seller. So the Internet uses efficiency and information to complete the process of killing gods. When those artificially fragmented information is recombined by the market, the Internet also pushes consumers back to the position of God. Since then, consumers can master the latest product information without leaving their homes. The problem, we as consumers have the power that should belong to us.
