 &  2  %! &% Dear Mr. Ando, What is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Internetâ&#x20AC;? in terms of space? How do we walk in the Internet, how do we even circulate without dying from boredom? We want you to design the Internet Pavilion. We don't need any complicate Netarchitecture, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatarsâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Virtual Worldsâ&#x20AC;? etc, that's actually what we want to avoid. We are interested instead for something poetic and influential, something suggestive such as the prints of ClaudeNicolas Ledoux.

ÂŤThe text we tried sendingÂť Mr. Kleinrock told me ÂŤwas the command LOGIN. So we sent the 'L' and then we called Stanford on the telephone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you receive the 'L'?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, we received the 'L'â&#x20AC;?, Stanford replied. Then we sent the 'O' and we called them again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you receive the 'O'?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, we did receive the 'O'â&#x20AC;?, they answered. But when we tried to send the 'G' the system crashed. Hence, the literal first message that was sent over the Internet was 'LO' which is old English for the word 'Look'! Internet had arrived and it was asking all our attention!Âť ÂŤDr. Kleinrock, is it true that you are not happy with the Internet as it is today?Âť, I asked him. ÂŤI read an interview of yours where you complain that with the existent Net, we can't connect from all places, we can't connect with all possible devices and also, that the devices that we are using to connect are still visible!Âť ÂŤIf I understand well, you want that internet exists everywhere, that we can connect with it with all possible objects and even that we will not have to use any device at all in order of connecting!Âť ÂŤThat's rightÂť, Mr. Kleinrock said, ÂŤinternet is no good yet.Âť ÂŤAm I wrong or you wish that internet becomes Nature? You don't need any devices to connect to Nature, its everywhere and you are always connected to it by all kind of objects.Âť ÂŤDo you want that internet becomes just another layer of Nature?Âť ÂŤWell, I never thought of it that way but yes, basically this is what I would like internet to beÂť, said Mr. Kleinrock.
