Here’s an idea that I hope never comes to fruition: SkyStation.
Imagine a blimp that supplies high-speed bandwidth to the city below. The plan is to put 250 of these 515 foot-long beasts in the air, one 70,000 feet above each major city in the world, beginning in 2002. I don’t know about you, but I’d personally rather not have these blimps cluttering up our sky — at first, one floating high above the city may not seem like much, but imagine if the experiment is successful and more and more stuff is put up in our skies. Seems to me that if this is the answer to the high-speed bandwidth problem, somebody’s asking the wrong question. -ram
