Hmm indeed, not sure what to say to that one.
Hmm, interesting. Not sure what I think about it, but I guess it does make some sense.
Well, are they going to shut it down and restart or what?
Noooooo my precious internet
oh noes ph3ar teh pruning
I think the most important question to ask here is what's going to happen to the 2005 Boards!
I'll be interested to see how this plays out.
It makes sense yes, but I think the shitload of money makers from the internets- read advertisers- would not want a shutdown and clean restarst, plus norton and antivirus programs would be making less money by the internet being more secure.
to be fair though its a decent idea.one I truly dont think it will fly though.
besides hackers and crackers break security all the time.
Here comes Johnny Pneumonic!
At least that way I could watch porn with the missus in the room.
I don't think they could shut down the entire net, even for a second, without massive heart attacks from all corners of the globe.
It says the new one would run parallel to the old one and eventually replace it. And that this would take 10-15 years to do. It's not like one day you'd wake up to find your net not working and then spend a buttload of money to get hooked up to the new one.
And you think she won't know?
Why is this sounding like the US attempt to implement the metric system?
"This way, we can set up whatever infrastructure we need to help figure out how to tax the shit out of it this time around!"
There's been talk of this for a while. The only thing i could figure they would be able to do with out destroying the economy is to sort of overlay the new web over the old one. Keep the old one actice upuntill the second one was ready and then upload everything at the sametime.
IDk, i just think there needs to be more thought put into it before talking about actually instating it.
Hey, imagine that--the government wants to improve something that seems to be working!
I'm sure this will go swimmingly.
Oh, hush. The computer you're sitting at right now wouldn't exist without government funding and encouragement, nor the Internet you're surfing right now. US Army funding made ENIAC possible; DARPA funding made MIT's legendary hacking work possible; DARPA funding made the Internet possible. Etc, etc, ad nauseum. Read a book.
