Tech people constantly trip over each other  searching for the "next big thing." Broadband project leaders fret over how to increase adoption. Do they realize the average person is drawn to broadband by simple apps that make life and work easier and/or more productive?


Harry McCracken has reviewed and written about truckloads of tech apps as editor and journalist for PC World, InfoWorld, Time and now head of Technologizer. Harry shows our audience that the path to broadband adoption and financial sustainability is paved with simple, effective technology.


Join us as we discuss:


  • medical apps that give users more control of their healthcare;
  • the role of mobile devices in a broadband world;
  • filling the pipeline with innovative apps;
  • what does a gigabit mean to consumers.


You may find this Gigabit Nation broadcast that presents data from recent research on consumer adoption of fiber networks to be a good primer for our interview with Harry.
