Corporate Citizenship & Edge Networks

Business Ethics magazine in the US has launched its top-100 businesses of 2005. What I found interesting was the amount of smoke stack industries appearing high in the list from semiconductor manufacturers like Intel to diesel engine company Cummins. More here, kudos to Smalldog.com's Kibble & Bytes newsletter.

Over at PBS.org Bob Cringely talks about how BitTorrent is currently costing ISPs a fortune in fees to pay for the bandwidth they used over the Internet. He also talks about how wireless networks using WiMAX will drive BitTorrent sharing networks to the edge, and facilate the ISPs launching their own video-on-demand services.

Expect the traditional telephone exhange facilities that have lots of empty space with the move to IP networks turning into neighbourhood Internet hotels for content hosting servers.
