More on Mobile Innovation

A few days ago, I posted on the South Korean success story in building out infrastructure to support faster and better mobile internet services. Consider this (from Fred Wilson)

… if we look forward twenty or thirty years, the percentage of people who are going to want to live without broadband at home will likely decline to near zero.

That says quite a lot about anticipated increases in the value of connection via broadband.  If this comes about, the Fred is right. We should build out wireless broadband infrastructure to accommodate this. No question.

but what will that increased value look like? What will universal broadband access give? Hopefully, it will raise the quality of interpersonal relationships — not just connect us to more data.
