The problem would be establishing trunks to carry enough traffic to make it worthwhile, or figuring out a way to distribute the traffic over many links so as to (again) make it worthwhile. I think streaming would be hard. And of course it would be an ecosystem, in which bad things could grow, just like the net is now. You have to solve the problem of DDoS to make this work, I think, and I don't know of anybody who has any idea how to solve that problem.

Nothing original, "Dip shit", just the same crap pasted into one comment after another. Sad!

This is like his tax cut plan- his refusal to release his own tax returns while pushing for tax "reforms" strongly indicates that the cuts are designed to lower his own taxes.

Trump obviously doesn't care about an American's emails being read unless the American is him or one of his employees. While I may like the result in this case, I seriously doubt he'd be implementing this policy if it didn't benefit himself.

Actually there was a penis transplant done recently on a cancer patient. To everyone's surprise it appeared to be a wild success, and it worked pretty well. Until the guy tried to actually use it and his wife was just too creeped out by the thing. (Maybe if she'd met the donor first... oh well.)

Comment Re: Just like Obama did to NY Times' James Risen! (Score 1) 99

Obama hacked, surveilled and stalked and outright harassed a reporter who had successfully dug up dirt on the Obama Administration and made them look bad under the guise of "national security" to silence him.

Who, Sharyl Attkisson? (He launched a cyberattack on her backspace key to get it stuck so it would delete an article on Benghazi she was writing. Thanks, Obama.)
