ARPA IN 1974: we're inventing the internet because networked comptuers are decentralized and therefore there is no single point of failure


@prophet_goddess to be entirely fair to the ARPA here this KIND OF is their fault if it is, in fact, BGP again

@halcy @prophet_goddess BGP came into being in 1989, right around the time ARPANET was being decommissioned, and was designed by Cisco and IBM. Essentially entirely different folks!

@prophet_goddess imagine not having a local message cache like almost every messaging app

@prophet_goddess Will this change people's behaviours? Of course not. They will keep using the wrong tool for the wrong job.
