I like the word internet even if it’s worn-out. It’s not the net, it’s the inter-net and it still sounds for me like inter-dependent.
Lets fight to keep the Internet and not let it turn into the internets… It is a difficult process with various flaws, but if we give up, it will be very difficult if not impossible for all of us to talk again very soon.
Joi who thinks global since his youth, fears that some countries prefer to do things again for themselves. For sure there are a lot of tendencies in this direction.
The „chacun pour soi“ is again en vogue: criticism to globalization is firing back, but certainly not always as intended by its first critics.
A lot of countries knew long periods of unrest and chaos during their history and I hope that this glocalisation period will not become one of them. So yes, I also think, it’s absolutely necessary that it remains one internet – even if it should be possible to map an www address written in kanji to a romanized one ;).
