Every once in a while I go hang with the local ".com wannabe" crowd in town. They talk of obtaining the things it takes to get more VC, increasing captured email addresses, hit/subscriber counts, demographics... and almost never about customers/users and providing a service or perceived value. Never about a pro-user view of the user interface.

Some capitalism is necessary. Currently rabid capitalism by idiots is molding the web.

Yep. I commented elsewhere that

... there are legitimate uses for belt-fed 50 calibre machine guns, and there are legitimate uses for JavaScript.

but far too much development is being sold to the VCs or the advertisers, and not to the users.

Time to start participating in a darknet, I think.
