“The internet is not a big truck. It’s a series of tubes.”
Senator Ted Stevens, in 2006.
As Randall explained in 2013 (What-If? 0031), sneakernet has higher bandwidth than the internet. It's only logical that Amazon has realised this and is exploiting it with 100 petabyte trucks. The lag is phenomenal, but so is the bandwidth.
I'm excited about trucknet, railnet, and shipnet.
