GENI

The Building of the  Global Environment for Network Innovations
 
Many academic types are arguing we need to get rid of the existing internet and start from a clean slate to deal with the myriad issues the world now faces such as security and mobility.
 
While I am not as smart as any of the people doing this work I wonder what the problems are with the Internet as I can access it from a mobile device today. Security has some challenges but is always being improved.
 
I am however all for this sort of clean slate thinking as many of the concepts being researched will no doubt find themselves into the current internet infrastructure.
 
This is what happens in the automotive industry where concept car concepts and sometimes even cars themselves find their way into production.
 
The National Science Foundation wants to build an experimental research network known as the Global Environment for Network Innovations, or GENI, and is funding several projects at universities and elsewhere through Future Internet Network Design, or FIND.
 
Construction on GENI could start by 2010 and take about five years to complete. Once operational, it should have a decade-long lifespan.
 
Here is an AP story for more information.
