spamdog: Oh boy, Wired + TED! Fart sniffers unite!Anyway, what a load of ancient FUD. We've known for ages that the net is not nearly as redundant as it should be. Remember that guy in the backhoe in Ohio several years ago who severed a very large internet pipe and took half the internet offline?Pretty sure nothing much has been learned from that event, but I don't think an entirely separate network would be immune from that kind of thing either.
ModernLuddite: I think the gist of the idea is to stop plugging everything in.Some things can function perfectly fine as closed systems. And to remain a closed system, all you have to do is NOT plug it in.
