Obama to Bring Intertubez Everywhere

December 8, 2008

In Saturday’s “fireside chat,” President-Elect Obama promised to bring the internet to all public domains.  He pledged especially to bring networked broadband access to every doctor’s office, public school and hospital.  His focus on medicine in this scenario is part of his plan to digitaize all medical records. This is a scary notion if you’ve seen Die Hard 4, but don’t worry.  Obama also plans to protect us from “fire sales” by producing an anti-hacker response team/plan.  In my head they all wear aviator goggles and a red cape like Cory Doctorow.
