Wi-Fi in San Fran

Just saw from the UB Daily that EarthLink and Google will collaborate to spread a blanket of free wi-fi across San Francisco. I also read yesterday that Philadelphia was working on city-wide wi-fi, too. Get the whole story on CNET.

Conversations happening in most major cities, I presume? Can your library help push the envelope? Can you raise the tech-savvy profile of your library by joining in with a city-wide initiative like this?

Or will privacy concerns keep us all struggling to find a reasonable solution? (Even though we've heard plenty that people are sometimes willing to give up a little privacy to gain some convenience. Or pay to maintain their privacy...)
