RE: what will all you who work for private isp's be doing in a few years?
Folks, I'm going to butt in here. Correct me if I'm wrong. Several years ago, here in California, the word was spread that a cable company has the right to the data and to the information which can be derived from it: rational was that cable is PRIVATE whereas things like POTS lines, DSL, T1, etc. were PUBLIC CARRIER. I, personally, was told, during a job interview in the San Jose area, for a position as a Forth programmer, that the desired outcome of the project was for the cable company to derive access information and purchasing information from the streams of electrons coursing through their cable medium. Maybe I have been mislead, maybe things have changed, but, just to be on the safe side - my household is sticking to analog cable, and several DSL lines, much to Comcast's disgust. Dave Hilton
