Webnode should consider acquiring a brewery as well -

Which, by the way, begets the question of how you would know what a plumber sounds like when he's snoring... On second thought, forget I asked. There's some things I just don't want to know... <g>

EK!!!

I wanna party with that dude: "The map focuses on the backbone, i.e. where a packet goes after it passes through the last mile and into the core of the Internet. The question I was hoping it would answer was if one or two companies owned enough of the backbone as to give it or them too much control over the heart of the Internet. My feeling is that while AT&T and Verizon own an awful lot, they don't own enough to monopolize the core. For what it's worth, I don't consider that a ringing endorsement for those companies or their practices."
