I have spent the past week at the Asian Publishing Convention in Singapore, where I gave 4 presentations. That is my excuse for the limited blog update. It’s frustrating how many hotels around the world try to make money selling Internet connections. My Singapore hotel charged $S15 ($US10.60) for 5 hours. The Net is like a utility such as sewerage or electricity. So charging for the Net is like paying to have a shower. Given I was in Asia, it’s relevant to point out that China is number one in both the number of mobile subscribers and mobile data users. In fact, 85% of mobile subscribers and 87% of mobile data subscribers are in non-US markets.
