wasting bandwidth since 1999

Getting Attached to the World

My skills as a “futurist” are pretty poor but I’m pretty confident with this one.

Cuba lifting the ban on personal ownership of computers this week will have a much bigger influence on changing that country’s government than the idiotic embargo supported by generations of American politicians.

The cost of getting one is still beyond the income of most people and internet access is still severely restricted, so it won’t happen immediately.

But this is a big first step.

    The cost of computers in Cuba will make owners an elitist group – but they still won’t have access to the Net. I guess it all has to start somewhere.
