|"New technologies are overthrowing the logic of regulation and offering Americans a much improved life. The nascent telecosm will empower individuals and families in work, education, entertainment, medicine and even politics. Among the wonders awaiting us in the telecosm is the teleputer, a device which combines both interactive video and telecommunications in one unit. It will replace today’s televisions and telephones, and give its users the ability to tap into a vast world-wide network of other teleputers."
Thus wrote George Gilder, in "The Freedom Model of Telecommunications."
As the various forms of electronic communication -- including television, radio, cable, telephony, e-mail and the World-Wide Web -- converge into one, the old system of telecommunications regulation is collapsing. What regulatory scheme, if any, will take its place? That's an issue on which PFF has taken the lead.
