Kabul: One of the first cities with a proper Wimax installation


The first thought that popped into my head after reading the headline “Kabul Goes Wimax” was, “Wow, Kabul has Wimax, and my T-Mobile BlackBerry can’t even get EDGE.” (Note: I’m about an hour north of New York City, also known as “upstate.”) The embedded video has all you need to know.

The great thing about this is, it shows the Internet being used for what it should always have been used for: spreading knowledge and ideas for he betterment of society. Sure, tweeting what you had for breakfast is fun and all, but you can’t help but feel that it is such a misuse of the technology.

But what do I know; I’m a noted cynic.
