1. Kevin – What is the chance of us seeing an article form GigaOm (or is there one) talking on the nature of wireless spectrum scarcity? I’ve been hearing this thrown around a lot – but how much is reality and what is marketing hype? I’d also be interested in seeing an article introducing for the lay individual the nature of wireless spectrum, how it works, and how it is saturated. Good post BTW.

      Thanks Dave,

      Great idea for a post. We’ve dealt with the topic bunches through individual posts, but it would be a good idea to do a big explanation post.

      1. Please do this. I’d read a 10 page article from start to finish. It would be a great educational tool.

  2. I wonder what will happen when the human instinctive greed for descendants (a/k/a still-burgeoning overpopulation) continues to combine with spoiled offspring wanting to watch movies on their phones, to collide with immutable laws of physics. There will be no “Let’s colonize Mars” solutions to this one.

      That’s a hefty thinker of a comment there, Steve :)

    2. Well, Cooper’s Law would surmise that we’re a LONG way off from that. 4G technologies use spectrum much more efficiently than 3g, which was more efficient than 2g tech, etc… And we’re on the verge of even more pervasive solutions such as twisting radio waves to dramatically increase the capacity per block of spectrum.
