Lafayette needs the Daily Media box

Two interesting blog posts on FTTH from Geoff Daily at

First, a review of Lafayette's network roll out. Geoff pinpoints two interesting new focus areas:
  • On-net file-sharing to boost traffic and the sense of community. Obviously, this could involve copyright issues.
  • Targeting late adopters of the internet by offering 'a special STB' for web access on TV. Geoff has a couple of concerns over the planned capabilities (no YouTube, no storage, no support for peripherals), which could all be addressed if LUS chose to go by UCD's Daily Media box that I wrote about a few days ago.
Second, his review of Amsterdam's local hero Dirk van der Woude, who gave a keynote speech at the Freedom 2 Connect conference.
