“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
Wi-Fi Broadband Service Available In-Flight
Row 44, a Los Angeles company, has introduced a broadband Internet service that it says will allow air travelers in-flight to use their own Wi-Fi-compatible devices. The service will operate over existing high-capacity satellite systems.
The company promises data link transfer rates as high as 81 megabits per second. It forecasts service that will support full-scale Internet surfing and e-mail with corporate VPN (virtual private network) access and can be expanded to include worldwide in-flight television reception. The initial production is aimed at the airlines but Row 44 president Gregg Fialcowitz said the product can be scaled for business aircraft as well.
