    This isn't really news, but I found it on Hacker News so technically I can still post it here.

    I thought this was a really cool concept. The internet was built around itself, and it was built for very different purposes than it is used for today. Consider the internet a highway that was great in it's heyday, but due to overpopulation and old age it is congested and poorly engineered for today's standards.

    What if we rebuilt the internet, the computer, networking and everything that we use to interact with it from the ground up? What would it all look like?

    A Web 3.0 without the "Web" part, huh? Sounds intreging and I just created it by just thinking.

    Welcome to 3.0; Copyrighted 1956.

    Oh, yeah, you can time travel to the past and back to the present, as well; still working on future time travel.

    Just get rid of all the porno ads that pop up and it would be 9001 times better. I don't need anyone shoving a vagina in my screen when I'm not expecting it, I can find a suitable vagina at the right time.

    And trust me. . .I'll find it. ಠ_ಠ

    The more I think about it, the more I realize that the internet sucks. Redesign an internet that doesn't run on advertising, without google and bing and facebook trying to force you to use them.

    But if we did make it again from scratch, would ED still have a place in that world?

    Advertising rules the world, unfortunately. Somebody has to pay for all this. Well, not this. We are anarchists, but most of the Internet runs on advertising and pornography and always will. Shoppers gonna shop. Fappers gonna fap.

    Who knows, some say it doesn't have a place in this world...

    You fucking commie pinko cunt. While you're out redesigning an internets that magically runs without money, why don't you cure cancer and get rid of all the niggers and foreigners???

    Get a fucking job and get your fucking head out of your fucking arse.

    Forget Facebook and Bing trying to get you to use them. I'm going to grab you, bend you over, and make you use my cock.

    Have a nice weekend.

    So...what would we use to navigate this "web 3.0"? Would it just do away with client browsers, and just seamlessly intergrate into a new OS? No more use for plugins, just codecs and drivers? Lol jus speculatin'

    We will start using projectors with sensors and shit so that when you're looking at TPB, on your wall, you can touch the file you want, and it'll start downloading the torrent to your wireless external hard drive.

    That's only a small portion of what it can do.

    And I'm not talking about Xbox-size projectors; these motherfuckers are twice as small as the iPad, with quintuple times the capabilities.

    You may as well call it Kinect 2.0.

    Maybe it's a peculiarity of using IOS for browsing EDF, i cannot read callmemaggot's post on this page, that second youtube embed is blocking it becsuse it overlaps.

    By the way, i am using the apple tablet and have been for weeks because i just pop in and out, and Ipad's have little wakeup delay times.
