Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Gordon Bell reviews the past, present and future of the technical structure of the Internet. He firmly believes that the phone and cable companies are on the wrong track, trying to kill each other to market video-on-demand. Bell sees the need for change in both industries so that they can work together towards giving the public powerful, fast, home Internet access for electronic commerce. Plain old telephone service (POTS) even at ISDN speeds isn't enough."
