I'm writing this short note from a beautiful ski resort in the French Southern Alpes. One week off, however my iPhone rings every day to bring me back to business for a (short) while.
This evening, I got a call from a training center, looking for an instructor able to teach FTTH install and fiber testing. We did not discuss my resume (although it fits 100% ;-)
but Obama's Stimulus Plan versus Sarkozy'.
We both came up to the same conclusion: the only way to create the hundreds of thousands jobs our country needs to 1) overcome the crisis and 2) get ready for the forthcoming global competition once the crisis will be over is to go (Green) Fiber Broadband full speed.
Unfortunately, it seems that our President has decided to go another way: 1,000 projects, consisting of the repair of a classified church's roof here or the construction of a roundabout there. Stuff to maintain existing jobs here and there, not to create the France of Tomorrow...
I wish I were American.
