you know what this means right?
free. holographic. porn.
as much as i agree with the K-mart, his avatar scares me.
i'm all for the grid btw.
Online gaming with thousands of people? NO THANKS. 64 or so annoying assholes, cheaters, etc are more then enough. -___-
But it does sound interesting. Though I'm a little hesitant about storing everything on it. How easy will others be able to access it? What if the network goes down?
Stealing your online information has never been quicker. Blink and it's gone.
What about holographic spamming?
Wow that actually sounds good to me. No more worrying about my HD crashing and losing my precious data. Or backing them all up on a few dvds and then storing that.
I am intrigued.
I'm concerned about personal and global security, but this is the natural evolution of our society, so bring it on!
I love technology, but not as much as you, you see... But I STILL love technology... Always and forever.
What about particle transporting? who is working on that? and where are my flying cars? you know, "Where we're going, we don't need roads"
Skynet is becoming less and less implausible.
And once I hook the grid up to my DNA sequencer and matter duplicator, we'll have teleportation...but only between a limited number of research institutions. So much for daily toy shopping in Japan. Stupid academians [/HOMER]

Well, with a new method of information transmission will come a new method of encrypting the information. What's par for the internet today will probably be par for the grid in the future - if you've got good antivirus software and most of the stuff on your computer (or grid-based server) is legal/regular stuff/otherwise uninteresting, then you have little to worry about in terms of hacking or information theft.
Actually, when you think about it...if particle transportation is less about actually sending particles from point A to point b and more about creating duplicates of the original particles from point A at point B, then high speed data transmission like this could end up being a boon for researchers trying to figure out how to appropriately transport/replicate their particle data in exact, no-loss-of-data detail.
I wonder if with the Grid with censor the type of information that is placed on it. I could see the RIA looking to pass laws with the new internet to get an edge against the problems they had with the old one.
I was thinking the same thing. It's kind of like the new and advanced Internet, and I think a lot of people who feel like mistakes were made as the Internet grew and expanded will look to stop this at inception. Think spam, junk mail, spyware, viruses, illegal downloads...
I don't know if it will actually be a separate thing or not. It was a bit confusing to read. In one instance they made it sound like it will be a separate entity, then in another they said it won't be open to the public, but some of the technology will be incorporated, thus just making the internet much faster.
So... do I need a new DSL modem now or what?
Separate names with a comma.
