Apparently there’s this thing called a ‘shadow network’. I mainly just like the name because it sounds cool. It’s like the Internet’s evil twin. Or like Dark Link from Legend of Zelda. Or Yami Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh! … It’s probably best I stop there.
Hackings and issues with leaking of top-secret government information basically made it unsafe for the military to use the Internet network everyone else used (thanks Julian Assange!). Ergo, they created an entirely separate network with absolutely no wires connecting the two Internets. It’s kind of rad.
In the end though, Julian ended up getting his hands on a copy of the CD with the shadow network, so there went that plan.
