Space Elevator or Space Tower?

I asked this question “Japan is planning to be successful in making a first space elevator, can Japan realize this dream? Can space elevator really help us get around in space better than today’s spacecraft propulsion technology?” on Quora and I got an answer with a very cool video which linked by a Quora user Bert Murray.  Check the video out right after the break.  I think you’ll like it, and you could learn something about space too.
