When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth

OverclockedSo maybe I am late to this particular party, but I recently checked out Cory Doctorow's Overclocked from the library. I had already read several of the short stories contained within, Anda's Game amongst others, but the one that has stuck with me and that I should have read long ago was When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth.

The story is that of a group of systems administrators that survive an global apocalyptic nuclear/biological/conventional disaster and debate what to do with the internet. The heart of the text is inspiring and dedicated, and should be required reading for anyone that Works On The Internet.
