In today's edition of "they sky is falling," we pick up on the woeful predictions of one Dr. Hannu Kari, who pinpoints 2006 as the end of the Internet as we know it. Today the good professor warned that the fun bus could all come to a crashing halt in less than two years because of steady increases in everything that makes the Internet such a pain in the rear. Viruses, trojans, spam, and security flaws are all on the march in the view of the Helsinki University of Technology professor, and if current trends continue, their burden will topple the global network. In case you didn't get the memo:

"There are many bad people who want to create chaos on purpose," said Kari

Kari has actually been caught holding the "end is nigh" sign before. It seems that an independent media arm of Finnish business and industry published the missives of the researcher back in 2001, when Kari was giving the 'net 5 years to live. For those of you not doing the math, that means that his slavish dedication to 2006 as the year the 'net goes black has been consistent for a while. After a heart wrenching story of a bakery nearly destroyed by a malicious hacker, Kari got down to baking his own loaf.

Internet about to collapse, says Finnish scientist
