More Internets

Smart Mobs points to this WSJ article (subscription required) on other countries creating internet alternatives.

From the article:

"German computer engineers are building an alternative to the Internet to make a political statement. A Dutch company has built one to make money. China has created three suffixes in Chinese characters substituting for .com and the like, resulting in Web sites and email addresses inaccessible to users outside of China. The 22-nation Arab League has begun a similar system using Arabic suffixes."
