Koko Signs: Autonomous Internet good. Project Kleinrock good. Gorillas love liberty and scorn both the security state and the nanny state. Live free or die….
Following are the details of a project to create a completely autonomous “second layer” of the Internet, completely free of the influence of or need for Internet Service Providers, and untouchable by the government. This plan is named after Leonard Kleinrock, inventor of the Internet Packet. It has been enacted after news of a bill entering the United States Senate which would allow a President to disable all Internet connectivity within the United States. (We later heard that this bill doesn’t do quite that, but that the President has had the power to shut down any telecommunications network (as defined by the FCC) for over 70 years.)
Phi Beta Iota: OmergaSDG is one of many isolated wiki pages spawned by the lack of integrity at Wikipedia, where trolls and editing wars are rife. While unfortunate that Wikipedia never matured, eventually we envision a reintegration of Wikipedia using the cross-wiki naming conventions and increased access to “lock-downs” that are now abused by Wikipedia mandarins for their own pet rocks, but should be generally available to those who spend days creating content with integrity only to see it lost to a troll in seconds.
