The best technological advances are those that become so ubiquitous that you don’t even notice their impact. Then suddenly someday you look around and go “hey, things have changed sooo much!”. I had one of these moments today when I found the Battle For America website, via Republic of T. My revelation wasn’t about politics and the internet, or even video streaming. It was about broadband:

The fact that anyone could classify a 90MB (think about that in old speak for a second — that’s 63 stiffies worth!) download as “small” would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. Things do change, don’t they?
