Brent Finnegan -- July 9th, 2007

For months I’ve been saying that the emperor has no clothes.

Today WSVA is reporting that the city plans to revoke the open wireless broadband network franchise with World Airwaves.

    You called it, finn – can’t say I’m surprised either. While I’m saddened that the project didn’t come to fruition, I’m glad city council didn’t wait until the end of the summer to move in this direction. I’m eager to learn about what direction the city will go from here.

    So where’s the snake oil salesman? Did we sink this ourselves (our elected representatives) or was it an out side source?

    The internet is definitely the way the world functions these days, why didn’t the burg pull it off?

    I propose that we revisit my previous suggestion that the city take it upon itself to provide this service to all residents (HEC as one very profitable example).
