Silverman on anti-free WiFi bill
The Chron's Dwight Silverman comes out strongly against the omnibus telecom bill that would ban municipalities from offering free WiFi to its citizens. He has some resources for those who wish to make their opposition known, including SaveMuniWireless.org. Check it out.

When I first read this, I had to go back and read it again. "Surely," I thought, "Chuck must be hallucinating again. Apparently not.
In other, words, those who use WiFi must first cough up the dough, even if a municipality has determined that it is a wise use of tax dollars to provide this service to citizens as party of the roster of city services. Well, I suppose if the Legislature doesn't hve the cojones to tackle school finance, they might as well see what else they can f**k up, eh?
I guess it's up to the rest of us....
