an interesting read.....


a wise aged ars veteran..says
Why in 2015 can't I vidchat anyone in the world as simply as I can send an email ?

Before private companies came and took over, we had:
- universal protocol IP
- universal messaging (email) (smtp+pop3+imap) : I can send an email to anyone in the world whatever I use, what that person uses. I can even host my own email server.
- universal document sharing (http+html)
- etc

After they took over, we have:
- no universal video chat: Apple FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Skype , etc but I can't vidchat from one to another. no universal protocol. no interoperability.
- no universal social networking: If I use Facebook everyone I want to interact with must use Facebook too, I can't 'friend/link' to/from another social Network (G+ or Twitter, or whatever). no universal protocol either.
- etc

It's pretty clear. They don't want to build an universal, cooperating Internet. They each want their own version of the Internet.
Only what was built before they came remain universal (today it's mainly email & web), everything new and added after is not universal

and et subscriptor..says

Call me crazy but nowhere did it ever say in the manual that the Internet was going to be a new Utopia...or even an old Utopia.

I've been responsible for building part of the Internet and getting people onto it, if you will, by building ISP's in the early and mid 90's and ASP's later on but it was always with the understanding that this thing would be big some day and promised a different future but still a future that would make (us) money, that it would be a real business and not a hobby that got out of hand. Most startups nowadays think the same thing.

Anyone knew that sooner or later traditional big business would grab its share of the pie and while they may not have done so directly they've certainly done so via hedge funds and VC's.

So, in my opinion, this isn't just the wrong question, its a total strawman, nobody ever promised us an Utopia but even with all the warts, the Internet is still a vast improvement over the old methods of communication in terms of equality and freedom
Is the Internet still an equal playing field, or are the megacorps taking over?

will this influence the release of 'space camp' on #bluray

Before it was decommissioned, we got to sit in the pilot’s seat and ask questions.
