Geddes’ Ugly Picture

Martin Geddes’ An Ugly Picture In A Gold Frame highlights the different worldviews that the internet and network operator camps have.  Worth a read, along with his commentary on the KPN presentation that preceded it.  His commentary on social value of common services is particularly scathing too: “the roads don’t generate much profit either, and we aren’t metering the turds as they flow down the sewers and billing based on how much curry you ate. But the purpose of such common infrastructure is to enable the rest of commerce and society to operate.
