Re: <nettime> For any reason or no reason - on virtual (extra-)territoriality


How is the credibility of the fiction of the government diluted by subjecting
one of its manifestations to the good will of a private corporation, whose only
motive for not flipping the switch off is accounts receivable?

Or is this just a start of the new strain of banana republics, Sweden being the
first one? We need a new name for that, for states not controlling ICANN, ARIN
and major search and social networking engines.

Browsepublics?
