Cook Report on Building a National Knowledge Infrastructure

Bill St. Arnaud, Weblog, Apr 30, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This report points to the direction the internet could (and should) take, based on the Dutch internet. "Unlike the United States - where private interests have walled off and Balkanized much of the Internet - the Dutch are committed to collaboration both inside and outside the country. They have been a proactive force for international collaboration with scientists and network specialists in the EU, the United States and elsewhere with their Global Lambda Integrated Facility or GLIF [in other words - user-controlled lightpaths - SD]. And the more you learn, the more it is apparent that the Netherlands is building the electronic network and knowledge infrastructure on which the economy of the 21st century will be based."
