Open Access
Telephone companies will do everything they can to screw up a service offering if they view it as even the slightest bit competitive with their interests ("An Internet E-Z Pass Won't Clog Other Lanes," March 20, 2006).

Even a vigorous local access duopoly is insufficient to guarantee the public the freedom of communications needed to allow this country to become even greater than it already is. Although I'm one of the world's biggest free-enterprise bigots, I don't think we'll be well served until Internet access is as free and impartial as the physical access of our street and highway system.

This 17-year former employee of AT&T sure hopes that we never see the rise of Ma Bell from the grave.

Flex Your Power
If fuel cells are standardized, there is a great potential for real flexibility ("Micro Fuel Cells Could Bring Many Days Of Power To Phones And Laptops," March 27, 2006). Imagine being able to swap your fuel cell from your laptop to your cell phone.

We're all familiar with the incompatibility of batteries and power supplies. Few people who carry more than one electronic device on business trips can avoid having multiple battery and power supplies in their laptop bag. I hope fuel cells can establish a new age of compatibility across devices and brands.
