 Machines and objects to overtake humans on the Internet

http://www.breitbart.com/news/2005/11/17/051117122039.bk8qci9l.html

Is this just progress or is this the Beast emerging?

 Re: Machines and objects to overtake humans on the Internet

yes this is pretty scary stuff:

"It would seem that science fiction is slowly turning into science fact in an 'Internet of Things' based on ubiquitous network connectivity," the report said Thursday, saying objects would take on human characteristics thanks to technological innovation.

"Today, in the 2000s, we are heading into a new era of ubiquity, where the 'users' of the Internet will be counted in billions and where humans may become the minority as generators and receivers of traffic," it added.

Currently there are about 875 million Internet users worldwide, a number that may simply double if humans remain the primary users of the future.

But experts are counting on tens of billions of human and inanimate "users" in future decades.

I am curious if anyone here has some information about the UN's desire to assume control of the Internet. (How would that work?)

 Re:

Compton,

I don't think there is any way that the US is going to give up control of the servers.

:-)

edit: Seriously I don't think any country quite controls the Internet...that would be the problem with the UN wanting to attempt it.
