This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

cbs4denver.com - Free Wi-Fi Becomes Available On 16th St. Mall:
"The downtown Wi-Fi network is accessible along 16th St. pedestrian mall and around Skyline Park which runs along Arapahoe from 15th St. to 18th St."

I wonder if this will be allowed since its seen as a commercial venture, as opposed to government trying to give needy people free access to the internet.

After Katrina ravaged the Big Easy six months ago, Greg Meffert, the city’s chief information officer, got downtown businesses back online by opening the city’s wireless mesh network—originally deployed to link surveillance cameras—to anyone who needed it. For free.

“Now it is the lifeblood for so many businesses,” Mr. Meffert told Red Herring. With Internet service still down in more than half the city, he estimates more than 15,000 people use the city’s 512 kbps (kilobits per second) network.

But, if the government offers service to people as a way to make their city safer, or in case of emergencies, that service will get in the way of big telecommunications companies that wish to sell that service.

“The vendors, the BellSouths of this world, are not only going to force us back, making our existing Wi-Fi illegal, but also they want to close a loophole for emergencies so that we would not do this again,” said Mr. Meffert.

I'm still a little unclear how this doesn't effect any service that the government provides? How can business veto what would be the will of the people? If we vote to use our tax dollars to provide a universal service to everyone then can that we shut down as well?
