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).

This kept me occupied at work for at least an hour today. The ability to drag the map (or, if you prefer, use your arrow keys) is the greatest thing since the internet, and the maps are absolutely gorgeous.
