The Obama Administration decided to expand always-on, high-speed network access in the US, but there's a limit to what can be decreed in Washington. I tried to combine practices that seem to have been successful in a proposal to the recent forum set up the by White House.Local forums to implement high-speed networks (broadband): proposal open for votes (Thanks, Andy!)
Maybe half (maybe) of the US population has always-on, high-speed network access. But we need more access for more people so we can offer more educational and economic opportunities. Check out the proposal, vote for it if you like it, and get other people talking.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
