I would argue for internet - it's a externally provisioned network, with
its own centrally adminstered IPv4 space, that joins disparate locally
adminstered LANs that may or may not NAT or firewall their traffic when
talking to the other hosts on that network (but if they don't, they
should). I use a capital I when talking about the public Internet rather
than private internetworking networks, but can't recall where I picked
up that convention from.

not sure what a public intranet would be, other than a contradiction in
terms? :D
