Re: Rocketboom

Well, it 'came' to me a few years ago that there would be a 'second'
Internet (?) that would be faster (?)… I see that the government is
creating their *own* Internet for the troops so they can download
stuff in the field, etc. (get satellite photos of strike zones, etc.)
but if the FCC – or corporations, as you suggest – try to hijack
the 'Net… could there be another version (a secondary Internet)
that might spawn itself. I mean, how far off are we from Iran with
the 'control' (censorship) thinking … as I just read Iran is going
to switch the Internet users to the government controlled version and
*then* plan to totally block all citizens from even having access at
all. Sheesh!

Is nothing sacred?

But I digress… 😉
