Wired covered several of these topics in their August issue. http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/10.08/korea.html The article points out several subtle, yet fundamental, changes that happen socially and psychologically once the broadband network is available everywhere, to virtually everyone, all the time. We have yet to experience this in the US. I suspect that when it happens, it will be much different than we expect it to be, technically and otherwise. We still have to remember that for all the hype about the Internet, the killer app is still email and instant messenging. The "killer apps" on Internet2 (video conferencing, digital libraries, media-rich collaboration), which give some indication of what the future killer app will be, seem to be equally mundane (but exciting at the same time).
