Vint Cerf Says It's Every Machine For Itself
Hugh Pickens writes "The Guardian has an interesting story on Vint Cerf, the 'father of the internet', in which he says there's no silver bullet for scammers, spammers and criminals running zombie networks, and ****-to-**** file swapping because 'the internet was designed that way.' Cerf adds that 'like every medium, the internet can be abused. When we think about it, we can commit fraud locally and internationally using the telephone system and postal service.' However, Cerf is also convinced that it's the internet's openness — in allowing people with new ideas to do their thing without getting anyone's permission — that is the main source of its power and is against the idea of a two-tier internet with a trusted, controlled 'overnet' for commercial and business use, and an 'undernet' where anything goes. 'My bias right now tends to be "It's every man for himself" — you need to be suspicious whether you're inside the trusted cloud or not, and when it fails, the house of cards tends to collapse.'"http://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?f.../10/01/2122243
