5TONIC
I wonder what it's like to work at 5TONIC Labs? I was looking at their website (https://www.5tonic.org/about-us), but it is a little like looking at the Kraft Cheez Whiz website: they make it sound like it's everything golden. Their brochure says they want to help everybody work together and support innovation, and put it on a cracker, too.

Re: unemployment
Freelancing online is my primary source of extra income. I have few in-person clients so online is where it's at. I have done a lot better with a faster connection. I didn't always have high speed. It was advertised as such but the company throttled users to a hault most of the time...

Re: Telefonica's Fire Prevention Drones
Agree. These seem like a great use of the technology. I hadn't thought of forest fire prevention before. Using drones seems like a fantastic way to ge ahead of the potential dangers.

Re: unemployment
It's so crazy to think that this is still a reality in 2019 but I guess it makes sense in rural areas.

Re: unemployment
@afwriter Agreed. I still remember my early days of working with pictures for layout in a magazine. With a slow connection, it took  a full 20 minutes for a high resolution picture to arrive via email. Back then I had to physically bring discs to the printer.

Re: unemployment
I surely would not bet on the correlation as noted that "Tennessee counties with access to high-speed broadband had 0.26% lower unemployment compared to counties with low-speed broadband." There are so many other factors to consider that I would guess this one might be low on the totem pole for causation.

Telefonica's Fire Prevention Drones
I like Telefonica's collaboration to employ drones for early detection, and prevention of, forest fires. Really starting to see the value of drones. This could be extremely useful in places like California.

The ongoing debate around GPON vs EPON can get as heated as discussions around politics and religion, but both technologies offer some advantages over the other depending on the needs your network is servicing.
