Bob Frankston: It’s about connectivity

Bob Frankston writes an essay titled “It’s About Connectivity Not The Internet!” on the SATN website. He puts forth an interesting idea that the Internet is becomeing more centralized in control, but that the innovation at the edges is what is far more important: “Rather than building directly upon basic Internet protocols we can and must build upon connectivity and thus avoid dependence upon the IP address and other constructs that limit to early design decisions and work-arounds… It’s about connectivity.” Interesting read.
