From the chaos of the early DARPA, ARPANET and NSF-funded NSFNET has emerged a globe-spanning communications facility we today call simply “The Internet.” It has become so commonplace and... More > so taken for granted that Wired News has decreed that writers should no longer capitalize it. This tale is not singularly focused on the past. It tells not only how we got here, but where we think the Commercial Internet must go. For all its greatness, today’s Internet has serious shortcomings. Theft of personal data, identity theft, online scams, and advertising fraud run rampant, with online dollars diverted to organized crime. Insecure systems, poor security practices and an attitude of secrecy and reluctance to acknowledge failings inhibit real solutions. We propose a way forward, a networking future that is bright, optimistic, and secure.< Less

More > someone else’s computer. We called it timesharing. Today we mix the idea of using distant computers and the idea of communicating via a network and call the combination The Cloud, imagining we have invented something new. But it isn’t so new after all. Beginning in the 1960s, a company created a successful business making remote computer services available inexpensively to anyone via a network built for that purpose. In doing so, they created the first cloud. Companies offered online resources from banking to research, email to instant messaging, and the ability to run applications on powerful, remote computers and access them from anywhere. They called it Tymnet, and the company was Tymshare.< Less

Call me Jill. It's not my name, though it has been my handle since I lied about my age to join the military. Yeah, that’s right; G.I. Jill. If I would tell the tale, you'd beg to understand... More > where was I born, how lousy my childhood had been, what sort of monsters my parents were, that Dickensian sort of crap. Fuck that! If you must know the simple truth, I'm an authentic Man in Black, the real deal. That's all you need to know. Years ago – before The Agency found me – having little money and despite some 'spiritual' gifts, few prospects due to my gender and stature, I decided to enlist in the service. I'm uncertain what I expected, a few adventures and travel the world, I suppose. Better than hooking – not that anything's wrong with that. Petite, Chinese and pretty; assets to a hooker, hindrance to a warrior. I needed to kick someone in the teeth – several someones in fact – until they saw more than curves. Schooled in weaponry and marksmanship; I discovered I like weapons.< Less
