What some of us have been saying since at least 2003 (if not earlier) is 
that it will _never_ die. Free speech, and the opportunities that an 
open Internet provide to the people who live in repressed regimes are 
the most dangerous things in the world to said regimes, and they will do 
everything in their power to eliminate them.

I'm certain that most of you have already noticed how cutting off the 
Internet is now on page 1 of every country's list of "Things to do when 
there is an uprising ..."
