Great work by +Marco Zennaro  and +Ermanno Pietrosemoli 
 
New book: TV White Spaces, a pragmatic approach

While several trials and deployments of TV White Spaces have been conducted in the USA, Europe and Africa, there are still many aspects that need to be considered in order to benefit from this technology.  A team of international experts addresses some of the most relevant issues, ranging from the spectrum regulatory framework and the societal implications to the technical details.

“This collection of articles explores both the policy and the technology around TV White Spaces. They are great articles individually, but they are strictly more powerful as a group. And as a group they continue the great heritage of mutual respect and discussion between technologists and policy makers - a heritage that includes changing the world for the better on a regular basis. (Professor Eric Brewer, University of California at Berkeley)”.

Just a short note to say that I have updated the AfTerFibre map with I've updated AfTerFibre with fibre networks in Burundi, Algeria and Libya.  See http://afterfibre.net

I continue to update the Flickr set of terrestrial fibre maps that I find at http://www.flickr.com/photos/ssong/sets/72157627195113720/
Now up to 57 maps.  About 10-15 of these have still be traced into KML format in case anyone would like to volunteer.  Instructions available at http://manypossibilities.net/afterfibre/how-to-contribute-a-map-to-afterfibre/

Brilliant promotional video for KENET, the Kenyan Research and Education Network.  The comprehensive impact of KENET on Kenya's digital growth will never be fully appreciated.  Kudos to everyone who played a part in its development.
