Peak Internet? Back Off, Science Boy

It’s not quite 2011, so my ban on “peak XXXX” hasn’t gone into effect yet. That means I can point people toward this New Scientist article on “peak Internet”. Its claims are superficially plausible — law of large numbers, etc. — but it does conflate people connecting to the interwebs versus devices connecting, with the latter likely to spike higher in the coming years, making “peak” a squishy notion. So, for now anyway, back off Science Boy.
