One of the paths which we strayed from

This is a very good message for what I have been talking about. How dependent are we on a system primarily controlled by large corporate interests? How much of the internet is controlled by large companies and barely disguised quasi-governmental entities. How easy would it be to shut down communication on the net.

The net was designed in the beginning to be robust in the case of an attack.  Now it has been reduced to a advertising medium.

Think really hard after watching this.  See what is possible.  Yes, it blew apart, but the lessons are there should anyone pay attention.

I think that you should seriously consider the discussion at minute 18:30.
