In case anyone really doesn’t get it, Bal-Loon, Internet delivered via stratospheric balloons. Sounds interesting in theory but a few questions pop to mind. How long do they expect them to stay in their initial location. I have to assume not tethered otherwise planes will crash. If not, steering by going up and down? Sounds problematic at best. As a tool after natural disaster it sounds like a brilliant idea.

Not for common folk? What could be more common folk than third world Abariginal common folk? They deserve Facebook just like the rest of us. Good poll Nick, learned a bunch in just a couple Googled minutes.
