I'm not exactly shocked but I am surprised that it's been going in earnest for 2 years. I do take issue with the "perfectly secure" as I don't think anything is completely secure (at least not for long). The implications of such a network are amazing and frankly I wonder how long they can keep the genie in the bottle. How long before strong crypto is the norm on the internet. If it is the norm, what will that mean? The internet is history's greatest disrupter but I think the distortions will be even more pronounced. I am hopeful but leery.
