The people on the net of course.

The paper/snail mail based  hierarchical beurcaracy is a pain to deal with
slower than whale slime. Depending upon them is an exercise in futility.
The more anarchic structures of the net allow you to have a much more
responsive set up. You don't HAVE to depend on the beuarcracy doing
things for you, you can do it yourself.
