Dial-Up Revelations

Meg Hourihan recently spent a month in Paris with an expensive dial-up connection rather than the net access she was accustomed to.

Meg writes, “Now I really get it: giving people multiple ways to access their data, offering multiple views of content through a variety of interfaces, allows flexibility far beyond what we get through a standard browser. Offering data through web services or RSS allows users to build interfaces to extend functionality not only because it’s cool but also because it can provide critical connectivity.”
