Name: John Iriye

From: California

Bio: Systems Engineer Datacom / Networks

Area of Expertise: Technology Developer/Administrator

Topic: Information Infrastructure

Headline: Pervasive Networking

Nutshell: The Internet Globalization to the Nth Degree

Vision: I see the internet as a totally pervasive network. Eventually land based infrastructures and space based infrastructure will become highly integrated and stratified at layer one.

This will support a globalized information-based social/ecconomic governance which will be governed by the technocracy.

Those who control the technology will control the infrastructure of global and local commerce and therefore the governance of social and economic structure.
