    The 1920s: A chicken in every pot.
    The 1990s: Internet in every home.
    The 2000s: Broadband in every home.

    What do you guys think of the new high-speed Internet revolution, and the coming of a second age if the Internet, with high qaulity streaming video, and other media impossible on dial-ups?

    Cowards die many times before their deaths;
    The valiant never taste of death but once.

    Let it flow! I personally wouldn't mind eventually obtaining an OC-768 into my home, but that's far from now.

    The more efficient, the better. Maybe it'll replace TV.

    I remember six or seven years ago paying 300$ for a brand new state-of-the-art 14.4 US robotic external modem/fax and loging on to the net with Mosaic. Back then it was mostly text, Yahoo was just a small site (man i wish i'd bought shares back ten) and i'd pay 35$ a month for the connection (when i could get it).

    NOw I have a cable connection for less than 25$ Can with the modem included. Man! you would not believe the speed those porn sites come in. Full streeming video GO GO GO!
