Explosion is a series of essays from people who make their living thinking about and working with internet and broadband technology. While not a "hands-on" type book that explains how to do something, it's valuable in that it allows you to take a step back and ponder the opportunities and issues surrounding high-speed, ubiquitous access to the internet.Read more ›
Now, as I sit in my home in a small town in very Nevada, I have at least five different choices of providers of broadband services. And the penetration seems to be growing so fast the reporting organizations can't keep track. This book reports that about 25% of U.S. homes have broadband. One web site says that the penetration jumped 1.36% last month alone to reach 58.6%. At any case it is exploding.
This book is a collection of articles put together by two professors at Harvard Business School. The articles cover almost every aspect of broadband services from what's happening technically, to the social aspects of broadband everywhere, to specifics on things like the next 'killer apps,' malicious threats, legal structure, and more. It reflects the current thinking on what's going to happen.
