Sad because you can't connect to the internet at the cottage? Don't worry. Soon the internet will even be available in space.
"Forget the world wide web. Through a project called the interplanetary internet, Hooke and networking guru Vint Cerf, co-creator the internet's TCP/IP protocol, have been working for the past six years to develop a standard for communicating in disconnected environments, where an uninterrupted two-way dialog isn't possible." - Wired

After all, you know that if Wired is covering a story it is likely that it's highly influential on media as well as on the world of technology. I myself bet that pushing the internet into space is a very smart project that will be happening in the near future.
