    Snowden's privacy-oriented email provider shuts down under U.S. government pressure | ZDNet



    Snowden will not be remembered for revealing the surveillance state. He is going to be the man forever remembered for splitting the internet into nationalized, balkanized enclaves. Goodbye US-dominated internet system...

    Won't happen as long as most of the root servers are located in the US. Seeing that the internet is a global phenomenon, the first step that needs to be taken is to store the root servers outside the US in the facilities of an international institution like the UN.

    2nd step would be to bring ICANN under UN supervision.
