The balloon-powered network known as Loon may be one of Google’s(s goog) famed moon shots, but the biggest issues facing the project are grounded right here on Earth. This won’t just be a major technological feat for Google. It will be a huge political undertaking. I give Google credit: it’s never shied away from a challenge. But if Loon is going to be a success, it’s going to have to wade deeply into the morass of global international relations.
Everyday presents a new obstacle to hurdle over and even with an entity as vast as Google. It seems even they have to descend the ranks and walk amongst the little guys to accomplish this one big feat!
