I've been watching this since I first read about Musk's intent to connect the world, this has the potential to be a game changer unlike any other. Tyrants and totalitarian governments are constantly trying to limit and control every aspect of emerging media. While Russia and China come to mind, most recently Iran completely shut theirs down during the protests against the government. What if the people could remain connected, what if the truth of what goes on made it to world news unfiltered, such as mass arrests and the killing of civilians ? A box as small as a laptop to connect with without requiring government monitors through wires even with a monthly fee. Reporters and without borders, it could aid groups like medical aid to remote areas as well. The potential is as they say, unlimited.
