WBS: "Back from Lafayette and Pondering..."

What's Being Said Department:

Geoff Daily, the fella I wrote about yesterday, is back home and promising a two day series on Lafayette sojourn in his AppRising blog. From the setup entry yesterday:
After a long weekend in Lafayette, LA, I’m back in the saddle and ready to share stories from my first immersion in this Cajun community that’s on the verge of deploying a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network.

...you can look forward to posts tomorrow and Friday that highlight some of the innovation and applications I discovered during my travels in and around Lafayette.
He takes the opportunity to state his own position on municipal broadband in this post before launching into a more specific analysis. The executive summary? In a nutshell: he's fretful but hopeful.

Geoff struck me as thoughtful and willing to deal with the realities of broadband in the US. I'll be following his short series here and would recommend it to those who have hopes for our network. An outsider's eye is always useful.
