That's O.K. We'll let Internet 1 (Maximum consumer speed: 2 Mb/s cable modem: average 21st century speed: 1.5Mb/s DSL connection ... or 256K downstream, 128K upstream using 20,000 foot DSL technology to be rolled out next year) be the money-sucker for the obedient nontechnical flock.

Internet II (Broadband, Spread Spectrum Wireless, Distributed Parallel Supercomputing) can go to the pagans: New World Order: Men In Black: Security Sector Shepards of the Flock: Consultants on Call to the Telecom Companies and Mega ISPs.
