  2. The 1996 Telecommunications Reform act shook up the teleco industries in both positive and negative ways, drawing criticism about the effectiveness of government intervention. In light of this, under what circumstances do you think would cause government to regulate or deregulate Internet economies?
  3. The last “hot bed” of innovation was the dot com bubble of the late 90s, during which million of dollars were invested into companies that ultimately failed. How can we again rebuild investor confidence in online businesses so that innovation can again reign, or is that level of innovation and investment even necessary?
