Internet Downtime: As Certain as Taxes?


Numerous factors in the last decade contributed to increased Internet availability - enough to support a growing number of applications including e-commerce and mass market telephony, not to mention filing of State and Federal tax returns.  Will the trend continue, or will an increasingly complex and targeted system become more fragile?  This talk (two days before 2004 Federal tax returns are due) offers one person's perspective of the factors affecting Internet available over the previous and next ten years.
