Now I know that is not how the song goes, I have had cousins from central Texas drag me to Gilley's to listen to that song live and they sang every word without missing a beat. So no emails about the title, please.
This kind of cowboy would make his stay at home mom proud of him anyway you look for what he has done in the digital world. He is a digital cowboy and his name is Dwayne Hendricks architect of the TAPR Spread Spectrum Radio has been honored in 'Wired Magazine' as the ultrawideband cowboy. That's the kind of cowboy any stay at home mom would be proud of...
As a forward thinking entrepreneur Dwayne Hendricks blazed a trail of wireless broadband access to Mongolia, Native American reservations, and isolated schools in Thailand.
The FCC's Technological Advisory Council is where he fires away ideas about taking control of the airwaves from the government. Looking beyond Wi-Fi to ultrawideband and other technologies that should make licensing unecesssary, this would also enable wireless access for nearly an unlimited number of people, managed by intelligent software in their devices.
A short look at ultrawideband, it made up of very short low power pulses that could one day move a DVD's worth of info around the home in seconds, yes seconds. As soon as the kinks are worked out most of the cables in your home could be use for jump-rope as the cable box sends new to your tv, the dvd player sends movies to the PC without wires.
This might look like pie in the sky to a stay at home mom homeschooling her children, but when you enable them with the right technology the sky is the limit. Just focus on the fact that your cowboy or cowgirl could help bring about the ability to freely roam between Wi-Fi and cellular networks with only one bill to look at each month.
Just that one bill alone should motivate us to get our children up and running in the right direction...as digital cowboys and cowgirls.
Want to keep up with wireless things for homeschoolers, stay at home moms and such...stay ahead of the Joneses...
