I want FiOS, and I want it now. More than that, I want all the services that are waiting in the wings which can be delivered only by super high speed broadband. Lycos is relaunching next week. Alfred Tolle, their new CEO, was telling me recently about the new social networking services that will be added to Lycos' offerings. Imported from the high-speed capital of the Internet, Korea, Alfred could hardly begin to express the incredible features that Lycos essentially had to dumb down (my term, not his) to adapt to pokey U.S. broadband networks.
The subject arose again this week at the Yahoo!/OMD summit on Global Youth, Media and Technology. OMD CEO Joe Uva, shook his head as he uttered, "We're behind. We're losing." He was talking about technology adoption in Asia, and the super high speed networks that are helping make it possible.
I wish linguistic limitations didn't stand between me and the super complex, multi-featured Korean blogs I'm dying to see - and use.
