In Benjamin Peters’ “How not to Network a Nation” we learn that the USSR
had the engineers with the technical knowhow and capacity to construct
national computer networks of scale. Indeed, the Soviet military had such a
network already in the 60s, but the question Peters wants to ask is why the
USSR did not develop a ‘civilian’ computer network akin to the Internet we
know and love today.
