FON: WiFi everywhere! Been ignoring this company for a while now, but it looks like they are quite serious about building a worldwide mesh of WiFi access to challenge the mobile telephony companies. Word on the street is that another big time player is going to be entering this battle as well, and that's enough to make me pay attention. (Hint, you can probably figure out the company by skowering the FON site). As for the longer term connectivity issues, at least in the US, watch out for what happens with the large chunks of bandwidth that got allocated for HD broadcasting...

The National Entertainment State, 2006, maps the properties of the big 6 media firms in the US. Nice utility, although I really wish it gave some sense of markets share, and showed any relevant indies (assuming they exist, which I think they must in at least some of those industries).

An open letter to Frank Gehry. By Jonathan Lethem I've never been particularly opposed to the Atlantic Yards, but Lethem makes a good case. The accompanying slide show though is a pretty mixed bag in the back up it provides. Still if it's going to be a Gehry project, shouldn't it at least be a good Gehry project?
