Five Years Late, As Always
by Moshe Yudkowsky
Once again, the US has made some small steps to catching up with the rest of the world, which far outstrips the US in telephony innovation. The Philippines, for example, used text messaging not just in a political campaign but to run their entire revolution. By way of contrast, the Edwards campaign has been fiddling around with text messaging for months but has just 6,000 subscribers.
The US is a major innovator in many areas of technology and telecommunications, but cellular services still run far behind.
You're not wrong. The same thing is true for Canada - where mobile ownership is dwarfed by european counterparts.
Moshe, hello from Evanston.
