Agreed. But at the same time I think we also need to emphasize the fact
that there needs to be a low-cost access to full bandwidth from the home,
rather than relying on modems. I know that there are many technologies up
and coming to try and solve this, but at this point it is still the fact
that most must use a modem from home.
There is a tendency to have a sense of elitism to one's "free"
institutional bandwidth. I too have an ".edu" address, but not the
luxurious bandwidth from home where I do (and prefer to do) most of my
work.

I would certainly agree with the support of CUSM, as it is quite simple and
could be a wonderful low-cost alternative, but unless popular high
band-width is achieved then where does the _revolution_ go?
