04-07-2010 Wednesday – More Ubiquitous Connectivity

Three links on Broadband Connectivity/Access…

One about Google’s Fast Fiber, a second on the battle for spectrum between the telecoms and TV providers, and third on why South Korea has the fastest Internet connections in the world (SPOILER ALERT…the reason is….COMPETITION…what a concept!)

It seems to me that our we are yet again ‘evolving’…Our society has gone from –

  1. Agrarian
  2. Industrial
  3. Service

and now to INFORMATION…

We are becoming a society of creators and consumers of information…and to add Emily Nagle Green’s ‘word’ for it…

We are becoming a society of creators and consumers of information ANYWHERE…ANYTIME…ANY PLACE…

This (and your) blog…the game ‘Four Square’ …GPS’s…Smartphones…eReaders/ePublishing…iPad…etc…

To maintain our competitive advantage our country must have a large enough and fast enough network infrastructure…soon enough…
