The Google Grid, Broadcasting at 700MHz
Google has committed to bid for wireless spectrum — as much to influence the direction of the market as to, you know, own spectrum (or so it seems).
And, good news: The direction they want to push it is towards openness.
These days, I find myself less worried about Google’s techno-titanic mastery of all data and more excited about its potential as a force for change in public policy and markets. I’m actually really glad they’re getting into that game.
