I recently del.icio.us-ed this Business week article on Why the future is South Korea, and today this O'Reilly post has pointed to a number of discussions around it - from how Korean broadband was implemented to cultures of social networking.

Apparently, the US could have followed the Korean model, with phone companies using higher rates to invest in fiber optic, but they didn't (the story is quite scandalous if it's true) - instead states are underdelivering on their promises of connectivity. What difference will all this bandwidth really make? We shall see...

See my last post on CyWorld for more on social networking in Korea.
