What do Spectrum and Water have in common?
I am giving a talk on Monday at the Science, Technology and Society: Idea translation course run by the Science Gallery. The Idea Translation course is a cross disciplinary undergraduate course stimulating the development of entrepreneurial skills through collaborative group projects. It is modeled on and closely linked to the Harvard University, Idea Translation Lab. In this semester the students are focusing on water and are developing projects around this theme. There is an emphasis on responsible design.
Ralph Borland runs the course. Ralph has asked me to talk about spectrum and spectrum ownership models. I suppose spectrum and water have very little in common. However they both are a resource and we as a country need to manage our water and our spectrum better. There can be scarcity issues associated with both and challenges that require innovation. The slides for my talk can be found here.
