Windows 7: Brazil Looks To Break From US-Centric Internet

Brazil Looks To Break From US-Centric Internet

Quote:
Brazil plans to divorce itself from the US-centric Internet over Washington's widespread online spying, a move that many experts fear will be a potentially dangerous first step toward fracturing a global network built with minimal interference by governments.

President Dilma Rousseff ordered a series of measures aimed at greater Brazilian online independence and security following revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency intercepted her communications, hacked into the state-owned Petrobras oil company's network and spied on Brazilians who entrusted their personal data to U.S. tech companies such as Facebook and Google.

...

If that happens, and other nations follow suit, Silicon Valley's bottom line could be hit by lost business and higher operating costs: Brazilians rank No. 3 on Facebook and No. 2 on Twitter and YouTube. An August study by a respected U.S. technology policy nonprofit estimated the fallout from the NSA spying scandal could cost the U.S. cloud computing industry, which stores data remotely to give users easy access from any device, as much as $35 billion by 2016 in lost business.

This is not all bad. This should add redundancy in the data paths between the US and Europe. Paths that would otherwise never be built because it is uneconomical to do so.

I'm not sure how it'll effect us that much. To be honest, I think tech companies should be moving OUT of America. Simply because of how the U.S. Government is operating. Google / AsiaSoft are opening new Data Centers where I live, which'll boost that economy so much.

Would someone care to explain HOW this hurts us? Cause I think it benefits us. I'm Anti-foreigner when it comes to South American's on U.S. hosted servers. As a previous Game hoster, I had nothing but complaints about lag, and inability to play the game. =/

I love my country, but i hate the morons running it.

I have some great Brazilian neighbours.

Not surprising other countries want to avoid their politicians being spied on. Petrobas was spied on too, allegedly. Industrial espionage doesn't go down well.

I expect there will be moves away from US companies as a result. Might turn out to be a great thing.

What I would like to know is;

How is this going to affect the web? Will we see a massive decline, or will we see an increase of activity? Are we going to have a DNS Hub in South America, or what? What I'm trying to ascertain is, how will this effect the gaming community, and the current web owners/developers.
