A student here, Angelus Kocoshis, has pointed to a news item
concerning the wireless network recently installed in New Orleans --
He comments that, "Though 128 is pretty slow, it's better than
nothing. Perhaps the political will will exist to change the law
too. Philadelphia tried to do this two years ago,
and the phone and cable companies fought it tooth and nail." Are
there any other examples of entire cities (or districts within
cities) going wireless -- without first having to suffer destruction?
