Immigration, Education, Bandwidth

I appreciate Thomas Friedman’s optimistic outlook after he attended the 2010 Intel Science Talent Search:

The French Connections

Behind the pay-wall at the New York Times, Paul Krugman writes about the sad state of United States broadband internet.

Even more striking is the fact that our “high speed” connections are painfully slow by other countries’ standards. According to the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, French broadband connections are, on average, more than three times as fast as ours. Japanese connections are a dozen times faster. Oh, and access is much cheaper in both countries than it is here.
