The Internet: a vast framework of interconnected applications, networked systems and mobile devices essential to our daily lives. It’s the primary means by which we communicate, learn, create, shop, work, share, play and manage our finances. We cannot imagine a world without it. Yet the very foundation of this technology, invented over a quarter century ago, is in jeopardy. It suffers from vulnerabilities in scale, security and privacy, and increasingly is prone to fraud. Together these threats will disrupt the technology we have become so reliant upon. Businesses built on centralized computing struggle to keep pace with ever-increasing scale of use, which drives up costs and further limits accessibility to the developing world, where only the elite can profit from the advantages of connectivity.
