The Rise of the Stupid Network was originally written during a single long weekend in May 1997 by David S. Isenberg while he was an employee of AT&T Labs Research. The focus of Isenberg's article is the development of a network that is smart at it's endpoints (where users determine it's acticvity). This is in contrast to so-called smart networks built by phone companies which are composed of stupid endpoints (phones) and smart networks that handle all the call control. Isenberg's main point is that the Internet, a stupid network, is creating new value systems by transitioning the network paradigm from smart to stupid.
