Insightful perspective on Internet futures.
 
I just wrote a blog entry (a rather long one) about where I see the internet heading. As you may expect, my view diverges significantly from the halcyon "one-world, one-internet" perspective of the I-bodies (IETF, ISOC, ICANN...)

Rather, I see political, cultural, and economic forces creating explosive pressures that will force the internet to evolve into a system much less like the unified world of Imperial Rome or today's EU (pre-Brexit) and more like Renaissance Italy with regions in competition and with strongly controlled paths for commerce.

I anticipate considerable disagreement with what I have written.

There are solutions for wiping data on laptops headed for the dump when Microsoft and the bios manufacturers make booting Linux to do the wipe hard (30 minutes wasted googling was enough)

I simply don't get those who use antidepressant medicine. Just start up Emacs and start playing with Melpa, Orgmode or one of the countless other modes. I find it rewarding and I can produce stuff that makes my work life and hobbies easier.
