    Internet is not dying. At leaset because there is a growing number of people who can not imagine they can live in a world without it. Internet is just changing. I am quite familiar with the problem featured in this article. There is nothing wrong with commercialization. Look around. Every portal site and not only portals, are trying to make their users "more loyal" by creating different types of communities and offering different bonuses to their members. This is why "virtual states" will have more and more physical (commercial) bounderies. Balkans are like the rest of the world. Simply, they are a small copy of this world. The problem with SE indexes is closely related to the problem of creating Artificial Intelligence (AI). Too many researchers are try to make a sytem "learn intelligently", but very few of them are trying to make it "forget intelligently". These processes are the two sides of one and the same coin. This is how Nature solved the need/resource trade-off.

    The Internet is dying, says Lawrence Lessig, a law professor with a cult following amongst technophiles.

    "The Internet is dying," he writes, launching a torpedo at the heart of techno-utopian mysticism by questioning the belief that all will be for the best in all possible worlds.

    How the Internet Is Dying

    Hello

    The DNS poisoning issue is moot for financial-related websites whose servers host a legitimate SSL certificate.

    Because the cert is issued only to the owner of a given domain, and not the poisoner, the visitor's browser will produce a warning if the cert's domain doesn't match the browser's domain.

    Now, if the visitor doesn't verify that he's submitting his financial info via an HTTPS protocol, that then falls in the category of "buyer beware."

    So, SSL saves the day.

    Thanks, Jeff Bowman

Even though, I am a card carrying cynic, I find this conclusion to be the equivalent of yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre. There are very few or no studies measuring the inflation adjusted GNP and GDP prior to general internet use (let's say 1993) and today. If adjusting for normal growth, I think you would find that there is very little difference. In other words, If the internet and all of its minions were to disappear from the planet tomorrow, we would still survive very nicely by conducting ourselves and our businesses just like we used to do.

    I am an attorney, an advocate, a trial lawyer, a litigator, and a retired magistrate who has lived and worked through ARPANet, DARPANet, DECNet, and the www in its many incarnations. DNS poisoning is just another form of identity theft Until the international world of commerce and industry insists that law enforcement agencies in all the countries with Internet access treat attacks on the Internet and its traffic as crimes against human society punishable by whatever the particular country considers appropriate for crimes which attack the fabric of society-- theirs and ours-- there will be continued successful attacks on Internet-based transactions. Internet based financial transactions are now the lifeblood of trade and commerce in the world and demonstrable proof that the American Free Enterprise System, flawed as it might be, is alive and well. The Pax Romana maintained by the legions of the Roman Empire was the last period of global trade and commerce. The trade and commerce of the Roman Empire was based on safe and secure transportation and communication which enabled the distribution of resources, commodities, and products over wide areas according to a well maintained system of commercial transactions operating under a global rule of commercial law. When the safety and security of transportation and communication failed throughout the Roman Empire, the Dark Ages arrived and each Village and Town was forced to become self-sufficient to the extent they were able. Feudalism effectively ended worldwide trade and commerce except for the very very rich and privileged. It has taken over a thousand years to restore the worldwide system of commerce and trade that once characterized the Roman Empire. Today the beneficiaries of the American Free Enterprise System just like the citizens of the Roman Empire depend upon safe and secure transportation and communication to maintain distribution of resources, commodities, and products over wide areas according to a common and well maintained system of commercial transactions. If the security of the Internet should be significantly compromised, the Dark Ages will be upon us once more. Swift merciless punishment-- retributive justice-- must be imposed upon any individual or group or enterprise which compromises the security of the Internet as a means of conducting business and effecting commercial transactions. DNS poisoning and identity theft in all their myriad forms must be treated no less harshly than terrorism and treason. At this point in the history of trade, commerce and industry there is no alternative. It is a matter of survival for Society and Civilization. Victor John Yannacone, jr.
