["MYSITE_TYPED_IN.org...] as they KNOW all about this site...
As well they should. I have been "battling" these people since 1996 - when the USA Telecommunications rules were changed to facilitate competitiveness.
I have archived visitor log records of Arthur Andersen, Adelphia, Global Crossing, WorldCom, and Enron - (their problems initially began in their highly touted broadband division - which was supposed to deliver pay-per-view video from Blockbuster Video). Too bad they never had the technology to deliver - my former company did have the sophisticated IP technology.
As much as people whine... the price per MEG bandwidth has dropped dramatically since the FCC/FTC opened the door to competition.
Yahoo has ALWAYS been in bed with SBC... and will do everything they can to maintain SBC's market advantage. They became over-confident for awhile, and allowed my information to be observed by thousands of potential clients daily... However, now they are waking up to the risk that WiMAX posses... and have chosen to "suppress" the information... Which is better than an outright censorship - which MSN tried in the past.
As I have stated in the past.... I am the former web master for the original 802.11 Wireless ISP... since 1996 I have been battling the "powers that be" to provide AFFORDABLE BROADBAND for the general public. I'm not talking the "Wi-Fi" crap which was a "concession" initially by Verizon in Downtown New York City - Verizon converted their pay phones over to wi-fi access points. Just like I was suggesting to the CEO of YDI Wireless about... and mentioned on my site... and Verizon announced a couple of days later when they "blinked..."
Ever since then, all the incumbents have been involved in a strategy battle for the survival of the fittest. WorldCON... they are teaming up with Verizon now... So as I have always know, Verizon can't be trusted for business. The Cable companies are "partnered" with Microsoft, and Bell South is teamed with the Germans. QWEST has been the odd man out... and they are grabbing at straws...
SPRINT/Nextel... AT&T... Clearwire (Craig McCaw's - the "founder" of cellular phone service in the US, new company) and quite a few lesser-knowns are ready to deploy WiMAx when the equipment comes to market... What the Phone & Cable companies once ignored... then tried to censor - which partially caused Telecom sector Meltdown - cannot be ignored any longer. BUT they certainly will connive to hide the information from consumers... They already made their move by disallowing competitors to "share" their networks - which is their choice (forced upon consumers). However, the companies that intend to employ WiMAX have much more financial wherewithal than the small "Ma & Pa" Wireless ISPs they have been jousting with the past eight years. The incumbents days are numbered because their refusal to uptake better technology provides a very large Achilles Heel.
Incumbents invested billions of dollars into FTTH - Fiber to the Home, and forgot that they had to connect the last mile to paying customers. Everyone was heavily invested in fiber... but "all of a sudden" these 802.11 WISPs in the unlicensed frequencies just "popped-up" out of nowhere to fulfill a need much more economically...
Trouble was...the "powers that be" didn't want ANYONE to no about this thing being called "wireless internet..." So mainstream media wouldn't write a single world about it (this is way before the terms "wi-fi" or "wimax" were coined}. Yet all the media... and Wall Street... and the FEDs including the FCC, FTC and SEC came to my former site often (I had the #1 web site for "wireless" the best that Nokia could do against me was #3 according to DirectHit.
There STILL are a lot of CROOKS that have not even been implicated in all the "shenanigans..." Let alone the ones that were found guilty serving prison time. These CROOKS literraly distroyed this nation's economy... and many pentioneer's retirements. It open the door to outsoursing... and our country will never be the same - PERIOD...
Many of the crooks were in Government itself... as they are paid tools of special interest groups (in this case - incumbent telecom). The "powers that be" don't want you to know about this... and I wouldn't be surprised if this thread didn't all of a sudden "disappear." But I KNOW many of the things that went on, because in a lot of respects, I was at the focal point of much of it. My former employer tuned down Cisco System's $42 Million buyout offer, and I personally answered the phone when Nortel Networks called to inquire about "licensing & co-marketing" our Bandwidth Management/IP Technology... However, after Nortel's engineers spoke with my former boss, they realized that virtually their entire inventory was obsolete, and the following month Nortel announced that they were writing off $17 BILLION worth of inventory.... and even with your foil hat on Bill... the resulting economic depression effected even you in California - even though you both are soooo "incredible" (if you ignore California's growing fiscal problems - everything looks GREAT!). Hell, the Silicon Valley is still trying to shake of the aftermath of the FALSEHOODS a few CROOKS perpetrated (and everyone else believed as truth)... and is trying to reinvent itself as "Biotech..." as Silicon has been commodity=zed... as has programming....
Unfortunately... there's not "much money" in "High Tech"at the moment..
But other than this... go ahead and wear your "foil hat" incrediBILL... as you obviously are ONLY concerned about your own well-being... I couldn't expect you nor most people to comprehend working for the "good of all" at the expense of oneself... until last year I placed AdSense on my site...
As I have tried to explain to disbelieving WW forum groupies... Google is quite aware of me & what I have been the "mission" that I have been conducting... Heck, I used to se the founders coming to my former employer's web site when they were testing their search engine back in their dorm rooms at Stanford...
And you can read here about people scoffing when I mentioned that I contacted Google over a year ago about setting up a "Free" advertising based Wi-Fi Network:
So tighten your hold on your foil hat, "Sir incrediBILL"... as the future shall prove who is right.. and who is merely entertainment. I've been doing this WAY before AdSense...
By the way... What makes YOU "incrediBILL?'
I don't even make THAT claim...
