Well, it 'came' to me a few years ago that there would be a 'second' Internet (?) that would be faster (?)... I see that the government is creating their *own* Internet for the troops so they can download stuff in the field, etc. (get satellite photos of strike zones, etc.) but if the FCC - or corporations, as you suggest - try to hijack the 'Net... could there be another version (a secondary Internet) that might spawn itself. I mean, how far off are we from Iran with the 'control' (censorship) thinking ... as I just read Iran is going to switch the Internet users to the government controlled version and *then* plan to totally block all citizens from even having access at all. Sheesh! Is nothing sacred? But I digress... ;-) Courtney --- In videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, Christopher Weagel <humandog@c...> wrote: > > On Nov 19, 2004, at 11:22 AM, courtwms777 wrote: > > > And has anyone noticed the buzz online about the FCC eyeing Satellite > > Radio?
