Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn on the future of the Internet

http://j.mp/1cDXKWd  (New York Times)
   "When Edward J. Snowden, the disaffected National Security Agency
    contract employee, purloined tens of thousands of classified
    documents from computers around the world, his actions - and their
    still-reverberating consequences - heightened international
    pressure to control the network that has increasingly become the
    world's stage.  At issue is the technical principle that is the
    basis for the Internet, its "any-to-any" connectivity. That
    capability has defined the technology ever since Vinton Cerf and
    Robert Kahn sequestered themselves in the conference room of a
    Palo Alto, Calif., hotel in 1973, with the task of interconnecting
    computer networks for an elite group of scientists, engineers and
    military personnel."
