How the Internet is Organized

As it turns out, how the Internet is organized today is actually not very different from the way that life at sea was organized back in the days of the Invincible Armada. The idea is simple. A bunch of pirates ban together and form a “company”. They take all the booty they can, as easily as they can from anyone else who is an easy target. Only now, easy targets are not ships out at sea, but people within a target market :o … But wait, what’s the booty these swarthy bastards are stealing? (excuse the racism)… data.

Most people when they think of “The Internet” they imagine a whole bunch of computers networked together. But I imagine this and I declare it a new golden age of piracy…

What is the Internet? An open sea with large pirate galleys we now call “Corporations” and you… resources.
