|Having now strolled through those decades and centuries, yes, that was a pretty good summary. |
Yes, the Moonies were annoying and SI was never particularly good at ditching the actual miscreants, resulting in me being banned for a while.
Meanwhile, when 1 million CDMA subscribers was achieved, it did seem pretty good, but look at it now with numbers in the billions cerfing around Cyberspace with many if not most using CDMA in various flavours. OFDM is now coming on stream [after initially frightening the Siers until Flarion was bought].
And the fun has just begun.
Because of the high and badly managed data charges, few people use mobile cyberspace and the devices are only now being produced en masse in a form suitable for regular humans. But there is still no good way to view them in daylight. Mirasol should start fixing that problem as well as battery life next year.
By the beginning of 2013, life in mobile Cyberspace should really be underway. We are still in the early stages of the biggest revolution humans have ever embarked on. Bigger really than biological history since the invention of DNA, but some people would think I'm exaggerating.
