Fiber Optic Memory Lane

Larry Johnson of the Light Brigade briefly describes the temporary museum erected at the 2011 Broadband Properties Summit.  The row of signs described the evolution of communications using light; from the development of the laser and fiber optic cable to the integration of these technologies. He talks of the Light Brigade/FTTH Council relationship to provide training for fiber optic professionals and the importance of maintaining certification in a world of ever-changing technologies.

What struck me about this display is how these boards represent a living history; a history which my friends and colleagues are part of in one form or another.
