If Susan Crawford is right about the introduction of fast fiber internet being analogous to the introduction of electricity then America is in big trouble — because a lot of other countries are getting fiber before we do. And, I suppose, possibly getting smarter faster, too... Unquestionably, the rich torment the rest of us when they can but in this case an important part of the solution may be local, where ordinary people have more say, so there's some reason for optimism. Thanks, Susan! Total runtime thirty three minutes. Nōn scholae sed vītae discimus.
