Cringley, UUCP and DSL

Cringley has another zany concept in this weeks article sent to us by Kaptain Kookamunga. He suggests we replace internet backbones with thousands of (very cheap) DSL lines and implement something similiar to UUCP for sending stuff over the pipes. He claims this will kill the phone companies, speed up the net, and reduce costs associated with the Net. I'm unconvinced, but it is still a worthwhile read.
