Update to post on teaching slides on the political impact of the Internet
(Scroll to the end of the post).

The campaign is over and Trump is president, but I've gone back and added a couple of new slides -- one on Trump's continued lying and another on recent revelations about Facebook. They are part of a collection of lecture slides I used during the campaign. A subset used in another lecture may be found here. I've added the new slides to both decks.

Elon Musk says the majority of long-distance Internet traffic will go over his satellite network and he might be right.

Trump lies as much now as during the campaign and his administration has followed his lead.

Google has been accused of being wholly uninterested in the Cuban struggle for free speech and assisting the Castro government -- I don't buy that.

Update to post on Cuba's failure to become an IT outsourcing hub

Inspired by the Nearshore Americas post, Cuban blogger and professor Armando Camacho has written a post on the failure of Cuban outsourcing (in Spanish). He speaks of Cuba's potential as an outsourcing hub, Nearshore Americas' optimism after President Obama's liberal Cuban policy announcement in December 2014 and their disappointment with Cuba's response. As Camacho puts it "nobody likes to get a zero on an exam," and that is the grade he is giving the Cuban government.

Update to post on #SpaceX rocket reuse
(Scroll to the end of the post).

SpaceX has made landing a 549,054 kg rocket that is 70 feet long and only 3.66 meters in diameter and has reached an altitude of 247 km and fallen at a speed of up to Mach 7.9 within .7 m of the target on a drone barge at sea almost routine. You can see 15 pictures of a recovered rocket being brought back to Hawthorne California for refurbishing here.

In previous posts, I reported on the status of OneWeb and SpaceX's global Internet access projects. This post is on Boeing's proposal.

"Cuba's Digital Revolution" is flawed, but well made -- there are some informative vignettes.
