Memory Bank Monday (10.5-10.11)

(via xkcd)

1. Man Who Tries Social Networking On Subway Gets Fired Solomon Lederer tried to connect to people in the real world via his subway commute, but was fired from Morgan Stanley after his story was picked up by the WSJ. You can see the WSJ piece and read more about “The Underground Connection” at his blog, here.
2. Speaking of broadband, Why Broadband Service in the U.S. is So Awful. Turns out it’s all due to two words: information service.
3. The UK is planning to roll out “superfast” broadband. The first step is mandating BT (UK’s largest ISP) to allow rival ISPs to use its underground ducts and telegraph poles to set up their own fibre networks.
4. Magazines complain to iPad for subscriptions, rather than per-issue payment.
