"There’s no doubt that blockchain technology will facilitate disruptive innovations in finance, much as the Internet facilitated easy public access to information. But a world of private ledgers sounds eerily similar to a range of “private Internets.””

Isn’t the “public internet” really just a collection of “private internets”, hooked together via gateways?  Connectors, if you will :).
