Transferring spectrum from old to new users have proven to be much speedier and easier than imagined by PCAST and similar plans of 10 – 15 years ago. Getting governments and government agencies to cooperate is the harder problem.
The Cyberwar in Ukraine
Who would you bet on to win the game of cyberwar, the best minds in the world or a sad bunch of hacks whose highest professional aspiration is working for a madman?

Enough Raw Meat Internet Policy, Congress!
