There is an ever increasing gap between how the “common man” would describe the Internet and how a network researcher would. This is not surprising, as the “packet with a label identifying the receiver” model seems to be an ill fitting abstraction for popular services provided by companies such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter. These services are primarily about information dissemination and a suitable network service abstraction should really do more than deliver individual packets with minimal latency.

We argue that we should adopt an information-centric system model instead of the current service oriented one. Rather than dealing with information exchange between specific services on a case by case bases, we should consider a global information storage and dissemination network on which individual applications and services are built.

In this talk I will discuss our vision the future architecture and give a brief overview on our progress so far.
