One word, and it's not "plastics"

John Edwards, guest-blogging at Lessig.org:

I’ll close with a word about just one technology: wireless. I see a lot
of wireless as I campaign–from the farms of Iowa to the classrooms at
Dartmouth. At the Rock the Vote debate tomorrow, weÂ’re going to be
getting questions by wireless.  Right now, “Wi-Fi” is offering mobility
and encouraging affordable broadband in places that wouldnÂ’t have it
otherwise.  But the FCC could do more to encourage wireless –with
market reforms that get rid of outdated license constraints and free up
more unused spectrum for sharing.  At the same time, no company should
be getting exclusive rights to the airwaves for free.  We’ve seen
enough corporate giveaways already.
