SAN FRANCISCO — The era of the American Internet is ending. Invented by American computer scientists during the 1970s, the Internet has been embraced around the globe. During the network’s first three decades, most Internet traffic flowed through the United States. In many cases, data sent between two locations within a given country also passed through the United States.

Actually it was JOHN MARKOFF

Original staff of the computer industry weekly Infoworld.

Was editor at Byte Magazine.

Was a reporter in the business section of the San Francisco Examiner were he wrote about Silicon Valley.

Wrote articles about the 1990s pursuit and capture of hacker Kevin Mitnick.

Wrote an article about the World Wide Web, referring to it as a “map to the buried treasures of the Information Age.”

I think he has enough background to give an opinion. The internet can no longer be controlled by a single entity.
