Humanity Lobotomy - Second Draft

This video is about 10 minutes long and worth every minute of it if you value freedom of speech and the open nature of the Internet.

We in Alberta have a head start on all of this because we have the SuperNet. The Alberta SuperNet is one of the most empowering and enabling communications innovations on the planet. It is unique to our province and was paid for by you the Alberta taxpayer and citizen.

It is in or available to our hospitals, schools, municipal offices and libraries - all over Alberta.

It could now be available to you directly as a citizen too. Can you imagine the impact that will have on empowering and enabling Albertans in virtually all aspects of our lives?

I will tell you more about this innovation in future blog posts. In the mean time watch this video for some background and the American experience.

We have to make sure our SuperNet stays in our hands as owners and citizens through public ownership. It is vital infrastructure for us to thrive in a 21st century knowledge and conceptual based economy.
