Is Louisville the Evidence Exhibit No. 1 for failure of cooperation among utilities, government, and whoever else could be helping develop fiber-cable infrastructure? Google Fiber’s installation adventure in Louisville was an absolute debacle. There have got to be so many lessons learned that somebody oughta write a book about it. Well, turns out that the book was already on its way before our local mess hit crisis stage. Susan Crawford, a tech maven who also teaches at Harvard Law School, has brought us “Fiber: The Coming Tech Revolution—and Why America Might Miss It.” She’s mad as hell at the corporate shenanigans that keep tech innovations from making timely appearances on America’s Main Streets.

About the Author

Author Susan Crawford

New Jersey–expatriate T.E. Lyons reconnected with the written word coincident with the arrival of his first child. His byline has since appeared on over a thousand reviews, previews, features, and fiction pieces–and a clutch of journalism awards. Favorite interview questions: “What’s your idea of good country music?” and “Do you think that last question was meant to bait you?” Reading and listening suggestions always welcome.
