Nihil innovetur! Well… maybe a little innovetur…

"In the Vatican they update their technology every 75 years, whether it needs updating or not."

That was my motto some years ago when I worked there.

However, I was glad to see in the Bolletino today that the Holy See worked out an agreement with Telecom Italia for a big fiber optic infrastructure which will allow them to do things everyone else has been doing for a while now.

Of course this is on a three year trial basis.  It will be possible to go back to hand written notes carried by uscieri and cans with string in 2013.

    No need to rejoice for an agreement with Telecom; Vodafone is better. Or Fastweb or … just any other service provider than Telecom Italia!
