There really IS more than one internet?
First off - I'm no Bush fan, but I'm wondering if his use of the word 'internets' (although probably unintentional) isn't so wrong after all. It's no secret (pardon the pun) to those in the military and government work that there are other 'internets', such as the SIPRNET
. I'm no expert on the technicalities, but I think a user could take a leap and say that the NIPRNET
and the SIPRNET
are two totally different entities. Just pointing out a technicality, spreading a little knowledge, and adding the disclaimer that this post has no bearing on Bush's mishandled use of the term to begin with!
