Honey, We're Moving to San Francisco

. . . not really. But wouldn't it be awesome if everyone followed their lead in at least one area . . . this one:
EarthLink, San Francisco finalize Wi-Fi contract | News.blog | CNET News.com
The city of San Francisco and EarthLink have finalized a contract that will enable EarthLink to build a citywide wireless network and Google to provide free Internet access.

Details of the contract, completed on Friday, can be seen here.
I, for one, welcome our new information overlords.

If this becomes a success (and I'm sure it will!) it won't be long until such an idea moves to New York, Chicago, Orlando, L.A., and other cities. Soon everyone will be connected with no excuse. And it doesn't surprise me in the least that Google is leading the charge with this.

I guess I didn't have as much to say about this as I thought I did. I just think it's really cool and I hope it spreads like the flu.
