Even More Reading Material — on Spectrum!

[ via Slashdot, Shirky ] The Economist has an article titled On the same wavelength,
which “argues that overcautious control of electromagnetic spectrum, on
the part of regulatory agencies, has resulted in the sheer waste of up
to 95% of available spectrum.” Clay Shirky has just posted an article
titled The Possibility of Spectrum as a Public Good, which puts forth the notion that if the FCC “manages its proposed transmutation of small slices of
spectrum away from property rights and towards a model that regulates
spectrum as a public good”, you’ll get more innovation, citing the example of WiFi.
