Internet 2
Brad Lemley
Discover, May 2002, pp. 62-67
The Internet 2 project is not so much about building a network with much higher bandwidth than the current Internet as it is about finding compelling uses for such a network. Many of the applications being investigated take the form of "telepresence" -- allowing users to interact with things, data, and other users in spite of physical distance.
