Internet & Networking The Obama administration has responded to two petitions regarding SOPA, but in true political fashion, the response is 838 words of absolutely nothing at all. Here's a link, but don't complain to me about losing 10 minutes of your life reading this empty drivel. How about taking a stand for once, eh?

I hope that the SOPA gets passed with its most draconian parts intact.

When this happens, it'll start a process that ends up with the world using more secure, decentralised technologies (moving away from DNS/CAs/IANA), resulting in a more robust internet.

It may be a bit painful for a few years, but we'll end up in a better place for it.

The problem is that there will always be physical wires owned by someone with bad intents ;)

Decentralized voluntary wifi networks can be envisioned in big cities, but how well would trans-city and trans-continental connectivity go ?
