The Fastest Internet Ever

Sometimes, what futurist Ray Kurzweil calls the "ever-increasing rate of technology" is scary. (Who, exactly, wants to live forever? Or grant robots the same rights as humans?) But when singularity-the theory that technology will improve exponentially until it reaches a state of unprecedented progress-quickens the Internet's pace by a hundredfold, I will gladly drink Kurzweil's Kool-Aid. Scientists from the University of Sydney have inadvertently demonstrated this theory by making the Web 60 times faster than current top-notch speeds, and promising to raise that to 100 times in the near future.

Ricky Bobby: You say you're French?
Jean Girard: Oui.
[sounds like 'We']
Ricky Bobby: We? No, we are not French. We're American, because you're in America, okay? Greatest country on the planet
Jean Girard: Well, what have you given the world apart from George Bush, Cheerios, and the ThighMaster?
Ricky Bobby: Chinese food?
Cal Naughton, Jr.: Chinese food.
Jean Girard: That's from China.
Ricky Bobby: Pizza.
Jean Girard: Italy.
Cal Naughton, Jr.: Chimichanga.
Jean Girard: Mexico.
Ricky Bobby: Really, smarty-pants? What did French land give us?
Jean Girard: We invented democracy, existentialism, and the ménage à trois.
Cal Naughton, Jr.: Those are three pretty good things.
Ricky Bobby: Hey.
Cal Naughton, Jr.: Well that last one's pretty cool.

Anyhoo.....no matter how fast it gets, I still want my physical media.

I'm afraid France didn't invent democracy or Existentialism. However it has significantly contributed to Existentialism and other realms of philosophy.
