  • Security: No one expected that the level of malevolence online to be what it is, so the “start over” crowd would love to build a new system that would do a better job of authenticating people and their computers in a way that would keep hazards like viruses far away so that you wouldn’t have to buy special software for protection.   Mobility: The internet was invented with fixed and stationary computers in mind and the fact that wireless connectivity has exploded the way it has … has caught many by surprise. The “start over” folks want to create a new system to assign internet addresses to small and mobile devices such as sensors, phones, and embedded processors in cars would allow them to connect to the internet securely.   Instrumentation: When we asked experts three years ago what had surprised them most their first answer was the growth of the Web itself. Their second answer was the way file-sharing through peer-to-peer networks had emerged. Basically no one foresaw the level of traffic the internet would bear and there are all sorts of hassles in the way data moves on the internet these days. So, the “start over” folks would like to build something allowing all pieces of the network to have the ability to detect and report emerging problems such as technical breakdowns, traffic jams, or replicating worms to network administrators.   Protocols: These traffic flow concerns also prompt “start over” architects to want to structure better traffic routing agreements between internet service providers that would allow them to collaborate on advance services without compromising their businesses.   See,258,p1.html
