One of the disadvantages of being an early adopter of technology, like the U.S., is that the infrastructure and the institutions become embedded in the development of the technology, and they, in fact, can become a constraint. What we see in under-developed countries is this ability to leapfrog those constraints -- they may not be stuck with an old telephone system, for example, that they have to run the Internet on. They may go straight to cell phones. And we've seen that happen in places like India, where a farmer can take his fish directly to market via cell phone.
