What Would a Martian Think?

Innovation, Technology, and Spectrum Policy, Mini-Conference, Nov. 14, 2006.  Andrew Orlowski, The Register.

Technology and Utopias: Media, Copyright, Regulation: Spectrum.  “It’s not so much a naïve question of people waiting on mountaintops for Christ to descend from heaven; rather, it’s a more micro form of utopianism that operates through a tendency to think in terms of blank slates – when Americans ‘try again,’ they forget that the initial/existing conditions that led to, or derive from, failure are scratched. But that’s not true.” Ted Byfield.  Muni Wi-Fi in the wild.
