Some Problem With Krugman's Bandwidth Scenario

So Much Fun. So Irrelevant. - NYTimes.com: "Therefore, the critical questions for America today have to be how we deploy more ultra-high-speed networks and applications in university towns to invent more high-value-added services and manufactured goods and how we educate more workers to do these jobs — the only way we can maintain a middle class.

Nice to see Krugman getting closer to the truth. What he is missing is that the university itself is part of today's problem.

Everything he says suggests the evolution to cyber-communities distributed over the nation and the world.
