USF funds and issues, quite global

August 7, 2008

First, in case, you're not familiar with USF. Wikipedia does a good job among its global contributors in defining and describing it. USA "was created by the United States Federal Communications Commission in 1997 to meet the goals of Universal Service as mandated by the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The 1996 Act states that all providers of telecommunications services should contribute to federal universal service in some equitable and nondiscriminatory manner; there should be specific, predictable, and sufficient Federal and State mechanisms to preserve and advance universal service; all schools, classrooms, health care providers, and libraries should, generally, have access to advanced telecommunications services; and finally, that the Federal-State Joint Board and the FCC should determine those other principles that, consistent with the 1996 Act, are necessary to protect the public interest."

I'm in Karachi for a couple weeks to participate in ITCN Asia and visit with some of the 10,000 or so extremely valuable ITSPs we serve with DIDX.

Ethnocentricity De-$tizes IP Communcations...

August 6, 2008

and really just about anything. I first participated in a debate regarding the concept, benefits, and disadvantages of ethnocentrism in 1980 during an Economic Geography class under a professor Dr. Doerr at the University of West Florida. In Wikipedia, it is defined as "Ethnocentrism is the tendency to look at the world primarily from the perspective of one's own culture. Ethnocentrism often entails the belief that one's own race or ethnic group is the most important and/or that some or all aspects of its culture are superior to those of other groups." Laura Guevin refers to it in her 2000 article, in a positive way.

This is one of the biggest blocks to moving a company ahead in the global economy of IP communications.
