Some interesting, network-relevant content there (but for the
neutrino and drone rubbish).

'Rubbish' might be a pretty strong word when you're talking about the players in this space.

If you want to shave off ms, using a source that takes at least
minutes to accrue enough signal for a single bit is definitely
not what you want. And drones across the Atlantic is way too
Rube Goldbergesque to contemplate.

My favorite from the article:
"But perhaps not even Einstein fully appreciated the degree to which 
electromagnetic waves bend in the presence of money. " 

Maybe they should invest into a dense, a really low LEO sat
constellation, and go by way of LoS laser.
