Community Connectivity - Building the Internet from Scratch

An interface is best when it disappears and the user can focus the problem at hand. In the same way infrastructure, is best when it can simply be assumed and becomes invisible.

The reason the Internet has been so transformative is that it gives us the ability to ignore the “between” and focus on the task at hand or problem we are trying to solve. To use a website all you need to do is open the browser and type the URL (or, often, use an app), and it “just works”. We take this for granted now. But when the web first burst onto the scene it seemed like magic. And, amazingly the web is effectively free-to-use because you pay for the connectivity totally apart from each website or connection.
