Broadband fuels online expression

BBC reports a research suggests that fast web access is encouraging more people to express themselves online. More than just for fast access, it is changing the way people use the internet. Users are actively posting content to the internet as oppose to being passive consumer.

"Broadband is putting the 'me' in media as it shifts power from institutions and into the hands of the individual," said John Craig, co-author of the report. And with the relatively high broadband adoption rate in some Asian and European countries, I expect a lot of innovation in communication will come that area.

Interestingly the report is commissioned by the net provider AOL, a company that tried to downplay broadband.
