I'm An Honorable Mention! (And Don't Miss Brian Mefford's Response to Brodsky...)

Not to toot my own horn, but my submission to GigaOm's writing contest about what I'm optimistic for in 2008 related to the Internet was selected as an honorable mention!

You can see it about halfway down the list on this page.

This acknowledgment has made me even more optimistic, not because of any personal glory I may have won but because of the recognition my message received. It means that I'm not alone in my belief that 2008 can and should be a tremendous year for broadband, and that the incredible benefits it makes possible are goals worth working towards achieving for the betterment of society.

On another note, if you've read my piece earlier today on ConnectKentucky and haven't checked the comments I highly encourage that you do so as Brian Mefford stopped by and pasted in his lengthy response to Brodsky's highly critical article.

I'm looking to speak with people on both sides of this issue in the coming weeks to get a sense for where people to stand in the hopes of finding a position somewhere in the middle that we can all agree upon. More to come soon...
