If you’ve been around for a while you’ve seen this before. Something is new and all the world talks to the Americans, simply because there are so many of them. Then circles narrow down. Because a real food initiative next door, or an artist commune running a campaign to take over the empty Woolworth shop in the town centre, is ultimately more relevant to me than what somebody in Arizona is doing.
Maybe it’s just me but I think local networks are the way forward. And no more private broadband, from now you’ll have to come outside to the pub or library to go online!
Ok that last bit was a joke. Would be fun tho.
