Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

We’ve covered the US Ignite and Gig.U initiatives on this blog over the course of the past few months, and now we’ve been pointed to a great video that explains, in fairly concrete terms, exactly what high-capacity networking means for everyday consumers. The video was produced by our friends at the Australian National Broadband Network (NBN) — but the key points are applicable to the U.S. just the same.

I encourage you to watch the 7-minute video after the jump…

And special thanks to David Lassner, VP for Information Technology and CIO for the University of Hawaii, one of the Gig.U members, who first pointed us to this video.
