If it plays in Peoria

It'll play anywhere. Internet2 is up and running in Peoria of all places. Bradley University is one of 225 universities hooked up to the new commodity Internet which is 100 times faster than a T1 line. Peoria Journal-Star: BU computers are hooked up to souped-up Internet2 system. The dean of Bradley's communication school said:

... he anticipated future art productions that could be performed in multiple locations. "They'll be able to performn together in real time at high fidelity," he said.

"You could have the music in one country and the dancers in another," said Huberman. "Boundaries become irrelevant with Internet2. It's an entirely different playing field. It allows you to link up instantaneously with the leading thinkers and creators in the world."
