Ho Hum Home Networks

Meanwhile, fundamental rules for the home networking "revolution" still are being thrashed out.  (By the way, why is it always a "revolution" to the promoters even though there's no groundswell demanding an overthrow of the existing system - which in this case is a satisfactory standalone environment?)

HANs [Home area networks] may someday play a critical part in the last 10 meters of the digital delivery process.  It's nice to believe the robust predictions, such as Parks Associates' forecast that HANs will grow four-fold from a $1.4 billion business last year to $5.6 billion by 2004.

From the article "Ho Hum Home Networks," by Gary Arlen.
