How do you say "bullshit" in Russian?
C'mon, Vadim. As the Net, and the Web in particular, grow more
geographically dense -- IE: as there _is_ more local stuff for users to
look at -- they _will_; people are natively more interested in that
which is near to them geographically.
And unless we unload that traffic from the backbones and the NAP's,
_it_ will be what melts down the net.
