This is the Modern World



The Jam: The Modern World

I shall be brief because Marcus is travelling back to Switzerland.

In fact I am writing this from the quayside at Dover, England.

But I am far from alone

If you click to zoom in you will see that on my makeshift table, my wonderful Lenovo U430 laptop is pumping Iron with  3.5MB/sec average download and 2.5MB/sec Internet connection.

To Marcus, simply astonishing.  I've told the story before, but whilst working on a contract in Krakow Poland, our entire Office of over 100 employees supporting a large Manufacturing plant had a private leased 0.5MB/second link to support the Intranet. And now I have 500 times the speed per employee, and over a mobile link.

Yep, Bonkers.
