We're all here because of our common interest in CATV and I'd like to view with you some of what's going on in this very complicated process of evolving assemblance of a broadband cable system. I won't take you by the hand and mince through any romantic telling of how cable TV early got started. I'll also stay away from using "revolutionary technology", "wave of the future", "explosive new medium of communications", and some of those other overworked and unbearably trite references. And I'll do my best not to drown you in a bath of statistics.
