... and now that Fib woke up, the embedded video works too!

the irony of writing of 'the internet' and failing to successfully embed a youtube video is simply Alanis-esque; lol.

Intelligent company IT directors and "sovereign individuals" (see the book of the same name, circa 1996, by Lord William Rees Mogg for the actual definition) would be well served to find satellite based private network connections to DNS and routing services outside of the USA before this battle heats up, since it's probably just cover for the firewalling of this country. While most routing still requires a pass through the USA, that will change quickly enough if need arises.  Those with unobstructed connections to the 'net offshore, even if in standby mode, will be glad they took the time to find the backup.

bottom line as per the r-tickle and the cumulative thread itself ~ can anyoneimagine what'd happen if the Internet in aggregate was off-line for 5 minutes, let alone 5 hours ??

In the marketplace of ideas, how many are choosing to install the Chinese (or any other nation's) firewall on their computer?

Well looks like the Australian gov likes their style as far as net censorship goes.

Awesome, can't wait to see more on this!  Only makes sense this war be fought online, after all I've been hearing an anti-China drumbeat for a while.  But here I thought it was going to stay mostly in the currency and commodity markets.
