today’s internet is not decentralized, but multipolar. it has many centers.
it becomes something, which it would become, if there would be no arpanet with it’s decentralized design. it becomes something, which it would become, if usa would not contribute years of research to the public.
there was minitel. if someone remembers it. there were different online boards.
it becomes an universal access to different centers like minitel.
email still works as designed.
who will still use it after several years? #internet #minitel #bbs #decentralization #design
