  2. Pileups on the Infobahn

There must have been some sad eyes at the National Security Agency during the last few weeks of April.

The death of the Internet has been prophesied many times, and no doubt it will die someday. But it will die of its own accord of technical obsolescence or because it no longer provides a useful service, not because a couple of plugs are pulled in central control.

There is no central control. If you get nothing else from this book, get that.
