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)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

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. ..."

Chinese banks ditch US providers for Alibaba's Aliyun

Nearly a hundred financial institutions in China have switched to Alibaba's cloud services division Aliyun amid security concerns with American service providers, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Commercial Times.

A "get rid of IOE" wave is currently sweeping across China's financial sector, with IOE being an acronym for traditional American technology and data storage companies IBM, Oracle and EMC.

Recently, a large number of Chinese banks have abandoned IBM's high-end servers, with the trend also expanding to Oracle and EMC as China's state media also accused US networking equipment company Cisco of cyper espionage. Meanwhile, Beijing has also banned the Windows 8 operating system from all government computers.

China's domestic cloud service providers have been the major beneficaries of the movement, with Aliyun gaining several million users as well as nearly a hundred financial institutions that have ditched IOE.

The switch comes after the US Justice Department made the unprecedented move of charging five officers from the People's Liberation Army with cyber espionage earlier this month.

According to the China Securities Journal, Chinese internet giant Alibaba once negotiated with Oracle with plans of a partnership, but Oracle wanted several hundred million yuan for three years of service. Based on its calculations, Alibaba realized it would have to fork out one to 10 billion yuan (US$1.6 billion-US$160 million) in expenses if it continued to use traditional IOE equipment and services, prompting the Hangzhou-based company to start developing its own system.

Apart from Alibaba, Shandong-based technology company Inspur is also reportedly preparing to replace IBM's Chinese servers. Reports say Inspur's host systems are in charge of key applications for institutions such as the Export-Import Bank of China, China Development Bank, China Construction Bank, the Postal Savings Bankof China, and the Bank of Dalian, putting increasing pressure on foreign service providers such as IBM and Oracle.

Once China's financial sector gets rid of IOE, the country's telecoms, energy and other sectors could soon follow suit to create a wave of mass migrations from foreign to domestic service providers, the report said.
