freitasm: Well said. It's like people on Twitter, acting like everyone is on Twitter and they are driving the world... A Cyber Utopia.
Twitter and FaceBook are two technologies that have really rocketed into existence though. I also see Android phones moving at a much faster than typical rate.
Compare it to say HDTV and or Digital TV - there was an article in todays Press about just how far behind Christchurch is on that one.
Don't get me wrong... I actually agree with what you're saying about not getting to ahead in thinking the rest of the world is there when it's just not.
My only point was that the technology now exists for consumers to bring change as quickly as they choose.
10 years ago we needed MTR because there was not technical choice.
At present consumers are demonstrating that they're not overly concerned about MTR issues at all.
