What a boring man, only got about a minute in, perhaps you could paraphrase for those of us who aren't interested in watching the whole thing...:ok:

By the way the internet already has an end! (http://www.shibumi.org/eoti.htm);)

So does the Kyoto Protocol.

And the world, according to the Mayans, and they should know. :suspect:

Never mind, if the Internet does come to an end, Al Gore will just start it up - again :ugh:

One thing's for sure... it won't go on like this forever. Enjoy it whilst it's still cheap and (mostly) uncontrolled.

Basically what it is....is that they will eventually only allow you to view websites that have advertised with the ISP and you would have to pay premiums if you want to view other websites...
People say they have deals in place and will act on it by 2012

Its the internet. As soon as somebody starts charging to use their site(s) somebody else starts up a new free to use version.

I won't be losing any sleep over this one. :)

I don't think so!

It'll never happen!

The goverments love it, freedom to spy on anyone and everyone! No messy wire taps, special licences.

They no where you are, what you look like, gender, sexual preferences, the lot,

Oh and how much tax they can charge for the next fiscal year - they know you know even those dodgy offshore accounts in someone else name.

Only time it becomes a problem is when someone turns their puppy back on them and accesses the launch codes for every silo on the planet!

The world goverments and various big corporation need hardly spend any dosh on marketting they can just steal it online.
