3-30-2010 Tuesday – Anywhere & The Digital Divide…

I read “Anywhere: How Global Connectivity is Revolutionizing the Way We Do Business” by Emily Nagle Green, CEO of the Yankee Group on a ‘whim’…and it was very revealing to me…I recomend it to everyone…this book convinced me to go buy the ‘nook’.

The links below talk about the FCC’s Broadband plan and the ‘Divide’ between those with and without “Broadband” in this country.  Make no mistake bandwidth/speed is a competitive advantage…for companies and individuals…

Here’s link to the Anywhere web page:

“Ubiquitous Connectivity” is coming…be prepared…and hope you live on the right side of the divide…it is very important to our country to build out a high speed wireless infrastructure…and we are behind..if you are not convinced we should spend our tax dollars on a high speed wireless infrastructure  just remember this will be our county’s THIRD high speed infrastructure (at least)…Railroads and the Interstate Highways…did these infrastructures give our country a competitive advantage?
