Richard Taylor's "Build and Break" makes some very good points. Although he writes about the US, I have no doubt that we are likely to see big changes in the near future in the UK as well. The biggest barrier to the revolution is the lack of broadband in many area of the UK; this needs fixing. Oh, and by broadband, I mean something fast - we should be aiming for 100 Mbit/s in to and out of the home at least. (Why so much upload? I'll addresses that in a blog post some other time).
