Philadelphia's city council voted to blanket the entire city with wireless access. (infoworld.com)

Who on here lives in Philly? You are some lucky bastards with this news.

However, I guess this is 'big brothers' way of seeing who looks up tentacle rape porn and downloads illegal music so they can put a stop to it easier, which is bad for the hentai loving, music stealing users.

It's neat but doing stuff on a huge citywide wireless network would mean a bigger need to really lock down your PC while you're on it. Having hackers on the same subnet bothers me.

After having lived many years in Philly, I wouldn't call anyone who lived there a lucky bastard.

Glad I don't live in Philly, then. (I know, TMI).

Is it just me or did anyone else find this funny This is probably not for me. I'm starting to cringe everytime I hear 'social' used with technology. It's replaced web 2.0 in the marketer's lexicon.
