Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Apple basically pwned all the infrastructure.

Heh, they had the author on NPR a couple times throughout this experiment. Between AWS, Google Cloud and Azure, it's really hard to go anywhere on the internet and avoid them. Facebook and Apple can be cut out easily enough I think and blocking their web bugs just make things better. On the phone side, getting a non-Android or non-iOS phone sucks :-\
