maybe the original should have said 10 or 15 years latter because i
still don't see most people with broadband and in fact the internet
population has started to drop. probably because 99% is just crap and
poorly designed crap at that.

I know your own government claims an overall growth in broadband
customers last year of 85%. In Canada broadband is 53% of the on-line
community. And in the US broadband users will take over all others by
2005. If you (not your personally, but the generic you) don't prepare
for the possibilities broadband brings to the Internet, then you will be
left behind. And that has nothing to do with accessibility or
compliance. The Internet is getting faster for the world. You got to
jump on if you want to go for the ride.

that makes it about 5 people

the problem is the crap, people are not going to pay up to 5 times
more (in my case $4k more/pa after $15k setup) to get crap faster.
they look at the crap they're currently getting at 56k and they think
"i'm not going to pay 4 times more just for this crap".

i'm talking the average family with a few kids. the kids may want it
desperately for their games/music/movies/whatever but the parents are
going to be looking at the cost and they may think it would be nice to
download a few movies/whatever but not enough to justify the cost.

i seem to be coming across more and more people who have dumped the
internet and the reason is always that they couldn't find anything and
when they did it was just crap. i would say most is probably
inexperience with using search engines but that just points to a
failure of search engines to deliver quality results.

for "most" internet users to take up broadband the price needs to
continue dropping and the overall quality of the internet to increase.


Research equates broadband's always-on connection to a high-speed
sewage pipe, flooding home computers with unwanted and unfiltered
garbage.

I agree there is a ton of crap out there. But there is an equal (or
greater) amount of plain ol-html crappy sites than ones that us
javascript, flash etc... the technology is not to blame, the developer
is.

> "i'm not going to pay 4 times more just for this crap".

How about the porn? You can never pay too much for quality porn.

But that does not seem to be the trend. The parents are buying it, and
justifying it, and most importantly using it. Just as we have spent the
last 6 years learning what to do with the web, now we have a new piece
of the puzzle, broadband. It will take time to learn what we can do
with it. The crap is just part of the process. And out of the crap
comes the CORN!

Well hell, there's only 5 of you.....

The trend does not seem to agree with you.

A little out of context, but I agree. Just because it is has security
issues does not mean it is bad, only that it has some security issues.
It reminds me of the book unsafe at any speed.
