The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

BofA Web Problems May Mean Wall Street Protests Are Already Moving Online

The bank says they're not but the type and timing of the trouble makes that very hard to believe.

CIO.com, October 04, 2011

Are the problems with Bank of America's website part of the Occupy Wall Street protests? If not then It's just a matter of time before someone brings the increasingly popular movement to the online world.

Now in their 18th day, the peaceful anti-Wall Street protests are already a nation wide phenomenon. From New York it has spread to a dozen cities, including Boston, St. Louis, Kansas City, Mo., and Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, BofA's website was crippled from Friday until Monday and even today people are being advised to expect delays when using it. The bank has repeatedly said this wasn't the result of hacking or malware.

However, it sure looks like a denial of service attack and BofA has yet to offer any alternative explanationa. The timing is also suspicious. The problems began the day after the bank announced a new fee for debit card users. Customer displeasure over the fee has been loud and widespread. As H.L. Mencken once observed, "It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place."

If this is related to the Wall Street protests it would mean the online demonstrations are a lot more malicious than the real world version. So far the P2P protesters have been content to freely assemble, shout and wave signs or otherwise exercise the freedom of speech. (If they have gone beyond this it hasn't been reported in the press.)

It's no surprise that Anonymous has jumped on the bandwagon. Someone claiming to be the group vowed to retaliate and "erase the NYSE" after video showing police officers using pepper spray on protesters surfaced on the internet. The Atlantic reported today that someone else claiming to be Anonymous said the threat is a fake, designed to discredit the protests. For further claims and counter-claims follow #InvadeWallStreet on Twitter. (It's hard to believe you don't have something better to do, though.)

Regardless of the Anony non-sense, it is clearly only a matter of time before someone will hack a financial or government website and say Occupy Wall Street is the cause. The Department of Homeland Security - or someone claiming to be them - has warned companies that attacks may be coming. That probably means the threat level has been set to greenback.

Even without doing anything malicious, Occupy Wall Street is using the web to its advantage. Vibe, an anonymous version of Twitter, is being used for some communications. The software lets users set how far the messages are available - they can be sent 30 feet away or globally. Users can also set the messages to self-destruct after a certain amount of time, making it that much more difficult for law enforcement to track.

However the most effective online action so far is taking place at agitprop sites like WeAreThe99Percent. There people are posting pictures of themselves holding a piece of paper telling how they've been hit by the Non-Recovery. That kind of thing is far more effective than hack attacks because it can change minds.
