The Great Former Senator of the Former Great State of Alaska Ted Stevens put it best:
“Ten movies streaming across that, that Internet, and what happens to your own personal Internet? I just the other day got…an Internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday. I got it yesterday [Tuesday]. Why? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the Internet commercially.
[...] They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It’s not a big truck. It’s a series of tubes. And if you don’t understand, those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it’s going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.“
Well, dammit, Former Great Senator Stevens is right, the intertubes are getting filled, and it’s high time somebody did something about it.
If no one takes care of unclogging the intertubes, pretty soon our Internets won’t be arriving at all. Even if it means standing knee deep in Google’s cesspool of information sludge, that’s the task we’ve taken upon ourselves here at Drivl.com!
