James Griffioen: Designing the Next Generation Internet

The Internet has problems; that isn’t news to most users. Slow loading speeds due to heavy traffic, hit-and-miss responsiveness to mobile devices and the ever-present fear of a major security breach are just a few of the glitches that range from annoying to dangerous and make the Internet an ongoing work in progress. However, there is only one Internet, so its denizens must either overlook the flaws by contenting themselves with its benefits or do something radical, such as invent a new one.
