The Network Effect
To celebrate our first anniversary of the CLE blog we produced a web documentary series on the impact of the telecom network, hosted by Dr. Steven Shepard. We’ll share stories about the network’s pioneers, the impact it has today in growing the economy especially in developing regions, and possibilities it holds for the future.
The first of six episodes opens in rural Costa Rica, then travels back to 1888 Missouri where an undertaker, inspired by a competitor’s unfair advantage, developed the invention which first put the power into the hands of the telephone customer. Tune in next week for episode 2.
