Clearly some regimes, that do not have the propaganda power to withstand internet truth, do lash out at their citizens who use the internet to inform others about what that despotic regime is doing.
We here at Dredd Blog consider the internet to be a part of the larger Twinkie system, and we consider the media to be the Jabber The Whut? portion of MOMCOM.
But what Dredd Blog is talking about in this post is a technical danger to the ongoing operation of the internet:
The internet could face years of instability as it moves to a new addressing system, one of the network's original architects has warned.(BBC News). Like climate change, peak oil, and other problems, government and corporate operatives can't look ahead because they do not have vision.
Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the internet, spoke as the UK was urged to begin using the new addressing system.
With current addresses due to run out in 2012, nations and businesses must get on with switching, said Mr Cerf.
During the switch internet links could become unreliable, making sites and services hard to reach, Mr Cerf said.
"This has to happen or the internet will stop growing or will not be growable," he said of the move to the addressing system.
It is a myopia induced by an addiction to immediacy.
C'mon dudes and duddettes of the corporatocracy, lets Cerf the internet!
