Having a debt that deep does have a large disadvantage. It means that we're tied to places normally shunned by previous policy. Nations that provide junk will continue to do so with slave labor. Unlike the first round, there will be no quality advantage, just cheap junk. Choice will be removed as we will have that as the only (practical/available) option. In short, that means we have no bargaining chip in national defense. That is one chip we need, and one we don't know we've already lost.
Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india
