  1. This is the kind of ideas that are great but badly projected when it turns to large economics. I believe Lincoln said “You can fool some people sometimes but you can¬¥t fool all the people all the time”
    Broadband deployment requieres profitability for those who implement it. Some small communities can by-pass it with no economic impact for the ISP but when too many people start doing it, braodband access prices start to raise. or the company goes bust leaving “customers” with no access. (chapter 11 notwithstanding).

    When the value of these ideas are not price driven (poor customer service, slow response to new needs, etc) people can pass by corporate sluggishness by doing it your self, untill corporates discover there was a need after all (for example, here in Chile TiVO is nowhere to find. One reason for third world inhabitants to hate I hate blogs is that it makes so obviuos what I don’t have).
