Telling it like it is
Excellent presentation from the representative of Delft University, which seems to have shaken the Regulators up a bit. He's a P2P research and development person, so many of his views are probably pretty unpalatable to people with a conventional view of the "telecom industry." His straw poll of the audience seemed to determine that only two people in the room were familiar with the concept "mash-up." Oh dear, let's get on up that learning curve. My favorite observation was that the current leader in HDTV programming is, of course, P2P networks. Check out this graph from the excellent Plusnet customer information site, which gives a clear illustration, if one were needed.
