Dewayne Hendricks on the Darknet

Dewyane Hendricks, one of the foremost implementers of wireless networks anywhere, and a guy so far over the leading edge that the leading edge asks him for directions, talks about the rise of the “darknet” (dark net?) in a 5-minute interview at Broadband Strategy Week, my set of video interviews about, well, broadband strategy. On the Darknet you can get just about any content you want, especially in the gated communities where sharers trust one another. Dewayne thinks that we’re not paying enough attention to this when we think about policy, especially since the Darknet is getting more accessible all the time.

  1. Crypto Anarchy: encryption, digital money, anonymous networks, digital pseudonyms, zero knowledge, reputations, information markets, black markets, collapse of governments.

    [Necessary explanation, since subtlety does not work on the Net, and my sense of humor gets me in trouble – the above text is a rebuttal in the form of an in-joke. You are not expected to understand it from the words themselves, but rather it relies on a subcultural context from long ago in net.time]

  2. Hint: Google the first paragraph of Seth’s comment.

    [SPOILER ALERT] Here’s the link to what Seth is referring to. (I’m pretty sure, anyway.)
