Google’s Project Loon Brings Internet to Everyone

Google Project Loon

I think it’s wise I let this child explain…

Got it? So basically Google is trying to bring the internet to everyone on Earth using giant balloons to create a global network in the stratosphere. It’s nice to see that tax dodging can be beneficial for the world.

On a less cynical note, this is a great concept but I do wonder how many balloons it would take to get reliable coverage for most users. There’s already enough junk floating around in space and having more devices with a short live-span isn’t great; at least they can be captured and recycled.

Who the hell picked the project name? What a fool. [loon]
