Intel is warning of potential disaster for the net.
Basically Intel is suggesting building a second, more advanced, net over the existing internet infrastructure. Aside from the fact that this seems like a scare tactic designed to increase Intel's revenue, it also suggests that the internet will become even more segregated than it is today. Those lucky enough to live in a part of the world with an abundance of money and power will benefit from the safe, 'worm free' internet. The poor buggers in the rest of the world, can live with our refuse (or the current internet). Wasn't the internet supposed to bring the world together?
- an interesting, yet completely unrelated note, in regards to this article. It mentions that the internet may one day reach 100 billion connected devices. This is approaching the interconnected complexity of the brain. ...we seem to be building our Earth its own little brain. I wonder what will happen if/when it becomes conscious.
