InterNet, the Inter-connection of local Net-works
A proposal for the Mozilla project "equal-rating"

Dear friends,

the Mozilla project is only for groups with 2 or more members. Therefore i have sent this text direcctly to Mozilla.

But the most important function of this text is to support our discussion and critical reflection. This will be more creative in our situation with that, what we give the name Internet. A big nonsense.

In the IRTF Gaia maillist on 7.1.2017 i received a link to a text:

“Reclaiming the Internet” with distributed architectures: An introduction
by Francesca Musiani and Cécile Méadel, 5. Dec 2016

This is the same theme and act in the same space. Not in the areal of technical questions to the components. But more to our philosophical orientation.

Reclaiming the Internet is a nice title. And have a clear orientation. But if no Internet exist, you will never be able to reclaim it.

In the ISOC global maillist we had last year a big discussion to my proposal to the EU Survey "Next Generation Internet". It is the same. In some other lists from ISOC and IGF and IUF and hacker spaces and Community Networks and so on it is new. Also in the WSF (World Social Forum).

The next and second part are the technical questions. But this, based on my experience, we have to organise it in a new space: Our global network for free technology. And this don't exist in this time. Therefore, we have to create it, because we need it.

Dear friends of Mozilla,

"Submissions must be made by teams of a minimum of two members". This i have read now the first time. But, i am alone. Of course, i will distribute also this proposal and discuss it with many people like the other proposals before.

I send you my proposal for your "equal-rating" project. Your Submission form is not usable for me as a single person. Please, check it and tell, what you think about.

InterNet, the Inter-connection of local Net-works

A proposal for the Mozilla project "equal-rating"

Dear friends,

I want to submit a proposal for the Mozilla project "equal-rating", which rests on my proposals at in Brazil 2014 and the EU Survey Project "Next Generation Internet" 2016. All together rest on my texts "InterNet design principles", "Decentralization of the IP addresses" and "Decentralization of the DNS system" on the basis of the ccTLDs (country coded Top Level Domain).

In the proposal from Mozilla ( we read:
"Mozilla believes that we can and must do better. We don’t believe possession of a smartphone is enough to unlock the possibility of the Web for a significant set of people. We believe the open Internet is a social, educational, and economic tool that can build communities and businesses, and empower individuals."

The free access to free knowledge and free communication for our free global co-operation helps the people to organize their stable local livelihoods themselves.

Vint Cerf, William Drake and Wolfgang Kleinwaechter have written a text on the fragmentation of the Internet for the WEF (World Economy Forum). I am not a friend of the WEF. But I am a big friend of this work. There we find:

Internet Fragmentation

Under: The Open Internet (p 13)
"From a technical standpoint, the original shared vision guiding the Internet’s development was that every device on the Internet should be able to exchange data packets with any other device that was willing to receive them."

This we can declare to one of our basic principles. But therefore we must ask the question of what is an Internet. My answer is: "the Inter-connections of local Net-works". This makes the InterNet to a transport system for digital data in packet form. The active elements in this network of connections are the local networks. And our "devices" with which we use these telecommunication systems are the elements of the local network.

This answer is not absolutely valid. It is subject to our philosophical orientations and systems of value.

We continue to ask how the packages find their way. Here I orient myself on how we find our way, if we want to move from one place to another place. We use the geographic orientation mixed with the knowledge of transportation possibilities over long distances.

The basis for this is the geographical position of a local network in a coordinate system of the earth. Which coordinate system we use is open, even if I have a proposal for it. But this proposal is intended to be about basic principles, which are then the basis for special details. And it is important that we follow the proven path of the RFCs. An open debate about good solutions.

Another important principle is that we implement the error checking in this transport system, because it is a matter of the transport. We want that the packages that we transport arrive as they were sent. At the second level, the application level, we act as if the two communication partners were directly connected.

This error check takes place in each segment of the transport system. For this the package has a checksum. In the routers, a branching points with at least 2 alternatives, the transmission is checked and corrected if necessary. These methods are also still open. The important thing is that we can be sure when a packet arrives, that is identical to the packet, that was sent.

We can summarize these principles in a list.

1) The constituent elements are the local and autonomous networks.

2) All local networks connect with their neighbors. We also use this principle at the level of the regional, and if necessary, the supraregional centers.

3) The transport capacities of these connections are basically symmetrical in both directions.

4) The global address for the global transport is derived from the geographic location of the local network. The local address is exclusively for the local network.

5) An error check is performed in each segment of this network, the route between 2 routers.

6) We distinguish 2 transport types: asynchronous and synchronous. The synchronous packets are preferred. Within the synchronous packets, there is the emergency call. These packages have the highest priority.

7) We decentralize the DNS system (Domain Name System) based on the ccTLD (country coded top level domain).

8) This telecommunication system is available to all people free of charge. It created from the activities of the people in the local networks and her regions.

The realization conditions

The telecommunications system is a technical system for the transport of digital data in packet form. The technology, the materialization of the laws of the nature, stay in the foreground. The principles of the design of the structure of this system is based on our philosophical foundations.

The technologies for our telecommunication system are the objects of our global cooperation network of free technology. Free to participate in the development, free to use the results, for all people on our planet. With that, we realize 2 basic principles: "Think globally, act locally" and "Knowledge is always World Heritage".

All people on our planet need this telecommunication system. Therefore it is reasonable, that we organize the search of the solutions in the theoretical and constructive questions for the creation of the components for this system in a free and global cooperation.

To the addressing space

The text "Internet Fragmentation" clearly addresses the limitations of today's addressing methods. If we use a 2 x 64bit address for global and local addresses, the following picture is shown.

Based on the determination of a point on the Earth's surface with two angular dimensions, horizontal and vertical, and an approximate circumference of the Earth of 40,000 km, a resolution of 9 mm per circle results for a 64 bit global address (2 x 32 bit). The 64 bit local address is completely available to the area of the local network.

This makes all discussions on the topic of IOT (Internet of Things) completely superfluous. And we're thrown back to the point where the Internet started.
