2040s hackers: desperately trying to disconnect any device from any of the seven internets

@sydneyfalk @eldaking we're going to have seven completely separate internets?

that sounds awful and also highly unlikely given capitalism's desire to connect everything to their data vacuums


@ben @sydneyfalk @eldaking Well I mean we already have the internet split across national borders which is probably why 7 was chosen (7 continents). Already we see companies that bow down the authoritarian rule for money have no problem, but protesters are silenced. 2040 may be a real disappointment of the potential of interconnection and the lofty dreams from the early days of the net.

I'm just tickled that this was even worth discussing
