Faster Net -- Noah Adams speaks with Terry Rogers,
project director of the Abilene Network, a prototype
for the network which would replace the current
Internet. Though limited to only few users, the
Abilene Network is faster and has more capacity than
the current Internet. The hope is that members of the
Abilene Network will fashion new uses for the system.

I heard the above report on last nights "All Things Considered". I've already heard about "Internet2", so have all of you, I'm sure. Does anyone here know what companies are involved in the hardware and software ventures that will go into the construction of this new and improved network. The academic sector may want to keep this highway to themselves, but we foolish capitolists know better. There must be some great investments to be made here.
