The Nets were an Internet-like network of connections between computers. It required a Citizen Access to be used by the average person.[1]

Valentine and Peter Wiggin accessed The Nets under the pseudonyms of Demosthenes and Locke, respectively. They visited various political forums, and later wrote columns on The Nets.[1]


  • It is interesting to note that the World Wide Web, the modern form of the Internet, was not invented until 1990, 5 years after Ender's Game was published. Orson Scott Card accurately predicted how much influence the nets would have, years before they became a daily part of people's lives.
