The Web 2.0 world is about to kick the door in and escort the old methodology to pasture. And I think it is going to happen pretty quickly.” —>

Much has been made of the proposed agreement that San Francisco has negotiated with Earthlink that would allow the company to build a citywide Wi-Fi network. But the coverage in the media has been incomplete, and often incorrect. —>
