Making infrastructure a ‘hot topic’ thanks to Obama

Time magaizne has a special on ‘New Perspectives‘ on (American focussed) issues in 2009. One is the revitalisation of infrastructure. Regarding their interstate highway network, its now not just about how to repair the asphalt but how to make them critical connections in the new era; being reinvented as corridors routing light rail systems, broadband networks, smart grids.

The start of the article made me smile:

Maybe the most unlikely thing that Barack Obama has accomplished in the past few months is that he’s made infra-structure sexy. O.K., not sexy, but at least a hot topic.
