Computer too old for broadband? Huh?

Christopher Mitchell just posted a great article on Peter Fleck’s PF Hyper blog. Sounds like the start of a soap opera. Here are the details…

Peter has been following closely the wireless situation in Minneapolis. He blogs about other things too – but to me, he’s the place to go on the latest for Minneapolis wireless info. Christopher works for the Institute for Local Self Reliance. I think it was at the Task Force meeting last month where someone seemed to imply that a household with an older computer wouldn’t be able to make use of a broadband connection. That was news to me and Chris. So he wrote a good article that details why that isn’t true and why looking at only the computer in a household is pretty short-sighted.
