Fixing the Internet

Proposed solutions to make the Internet significantly more secure during the next five years

It will require two major Internet infrastructure changes. First, it will require a global, Internet security "dream team" to meet and solve the problems. Second, it will require a new global Internet security infrastructure service to handle the dream team's global initiatives.

That's it. The whitepaper covers each of these issues, along with the motivations and explanations behind the ideas. I hope you'll take the time to read it.

Not everyone will agree with what I have said, but I hope both sides, supporters and critics, will write back and participate. It's easier to tear down a barn than it is to build one, but I know that there are several ways to make a barn, many styles of barns, and mine isn't the only way. Even if I don't have all the solutions, I want to provoke a dialog that starts a discussion about the real solutions to the Internet's security problems. If you disagree with my ideas, I only ask that you propose your idea for fixing the Internet along with your criticism.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
