Thanks Wangari for sharing this. But there is something else to note in
this. The Geopolitical angle. The US allies numbers is not captured in this
article & the internet architecture.
And China’s interests is more on access of data for its internal & external
politics plus Intellectual theft( diplomatically called Industrial
espionage). I see this in heavily encrypted applications already hence the
Chinese desire for the world to use WeChat which it has control of vs
WhatsApp,Telegram & Signal which is a headache for them.
Geopolitical issues & Industrialization is the key driver for Chinese
desire to control the Internet. Will America and its Western allies
including Japan, South Korea & Australia allow this? Time will tell.
