Research initiatives to redesign the Internet are popping up all around the globe. Some claim that the Internet must be redesigned from the information point of view. This approach goes under the banner of information-centrism. In the other hand, other initiatives claim that the design must be centered on the services, i.e. the service-centrism or the Internet of services. And there are also those focusing on decoupling host identifiers from locators to improve mobility support. Which is the right path to follow? We contend that none of them alone, but instead, to integrate synergistically them all. We call this approach the Internet of information and services.
