    companies should keep their private information on an internal network which is not connected to the internet. it's the only way.

    alas, companies are stupid.

    also I like my lawless internet, makes things a bit more interesting, a bit more fun.

    They can always keep arresting some no-name random basement dweller 12 years old pretending to be straight on the track of Anonymous leaders or whatever

    You mean the Federal Bureau of Investigation is unable to fight an indeterminately yet undoubtedly superior sized group of people, some of which may well have designed the very software that is being used in an attempt to stop them? Who would have thought.

    Of course they can't stop hackers, FBI has no jurisdiction in Russia. So instead, they spend our tax money fucking around with teenagers on IRC servers trying to make it look like they're accomplishing something by throwing 40 year sentences at children.

    Well, it's good form to randomly arrest minors for dubious charges. Bad society otherwise.

    All of this. It baffles me that corps keep their networks hooked up, particularly when study after study shows internet access decreases productivity.
    They moved it to Church street. Castro is the heroin district now.

    That's what i never understood, make sensitive files transferred over the internet! in a unified format anybody can hack and intercept break into and obtain!
    I also think that things like geographically based networks should be applied, certain websites and info can only be obtained by people who live in a particular area.

    Such as.

    People looking for schools, for streets, and public records.
    Unless you live in that area, you need a special permission grant to have access.
    Also i want to see something done with this fucked up social networking.
    There probably should in the future, be something like facebook, but you access a site based in your suburb or city, and only residents can sign up, and you get to know other people in your area, and have a chat, for people working they can after work spend some time in chatrooms making small talk and making friends.
    It retains the community spirit of Yore, but puts it on local computer networking.

    So basically you support a globalized network government agency to regulate anyone conducting business online.

    NO.

    We already have one. The NSA is currently building the data center that will hold it all in Utah. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/03/ff_nsadatacenter/all/1

    Not that it is likely to help, as all the info in the world does not compensate for agent who are still being trained to fight the Cold War against Russia.

    No you numbskull, the idea is having network infrastructure as part of a city's infrastructure paid for by the people and maintained by city hall, it puts up firewalls to protect data and access is revelant on where you live, only websites made for free knowledge that is encyclopedic in nature would sites like Ehow Howstuffworks Wikipedia and Britannica be available no matter where you live.

    In other words, if the internet was like this, there would be no google, because everything gets kept airtight, access is divided and so is the ownership of the infrastructure.
    Things would probably be allot safer, we all know Google's one big mission is to make millions selling dirt on people in important jobs or positions to others who intend to blackmail them.

    Tourism weakens the economy far more than any global recession alone can do.
    It's like a niiiiger on Welfare, take away the Welfare the niiiiger starves to death and dies.
    Take away Tourism in a place that has thrown away every other method of commerce and the entire city or province goes bust withers and dies.
    Someone who knows how to work and provide for themselves in tough times can still make it through,
    a niiiiger who has spent all his life dependant on welfare and doing nothing for himself, will not.
    See my Analogy?

    You have some kind of long winded gimmick on here or something? Fuck dude, get to the point. And the point is you contradict yourself in the first sentence.

    Short story is Internet should be a paid for by tax and maintained independantly by it's own city people, it should be like a public library in virtual form, and social networking should be limited to people networking with people in their own city or town of residence that way people will go out more often, particularly teenagers rather than the typical teenage scenario of having a boyfriend or girlfriend on the other side of the earth.

    And if it was run that way, there would be minimum risk of commercial data mining.

    City tax revenues are only collected in major cities. You just disconnected more the 3/4 the world, asshole.

    And now you're anti-internet? ACTUALLY YOU'RE JUST FAKE.

    it's an interesting idea, but I can't see people wanting to limit themselves like that.

    chances are that the networking sites which are not geographically limited would still retain more popularity than the local versions, and said local versions would just become e-ghettos once the novelty wears off of these people ACTUALLY LIVING NEAR YOU!!!1111
