Local sources of funding for broad-
band:  "Look, folks, if people want
broadband, they have to look in the
mirror for the solutions to obtain it....
I believe that for a majority of com-
munities, if broadband is going to
happen, most of the burden will have
to rest on those local communities."
(from Craig Settles)

“Is China the Next Enron”

 

New York Times

 

"Google is done censoring search results
in China and is prepared to abandon the
country over the issue.  ...we've got to
hand it to Google— the company's 'don't
be evil' schtick has long worn thin and
governments around the globe are already
probing its potential monopoly power,  
but who else would come out swinging
against the entire Chinese government
and announce an end to its own collab-
oration in censorship, all while recogni-
zing that it could lose access to the entire
Chinese market?  And do it in a blog
post?"
