The End Of The Internet Is Nigh!

from the will-he-eat-those-words? dept

Broadband Reports is passing on the news that a researcher in Finland has extrapolated out a few online trends and determined that the internet will collapse in 2006, under the weight of all these evil viruses, spam and other forms of malware. He makes a bunch of suggestions to save the internet, most of which… um… appear to already be happening. He suggests improving infrastructure and coming up with email authentication projects. Apparently, in calculating out all of these trends, the good professor Hannu H Kari couldn’t be bothered to see what people were actually doing to help fix the internet’s weaknesses. There’s no word on whether or not Kari, a la Bob Metcalfe, will promise to eat his words, should the internet still be standing by the end of 2006.
