The city of Boston is hosting a WiFi Summmit in May that a group I’m involved in, BostonWAG (wireless advocacy group), is helping organize along with City Councillor John Tobin’s office and the WiFi Task Force he’s assembled. In advance of the summit, there’s a community forum coming up on Tuesday, April 19th at The Boston Public Library’s Copley Branch at 7pm in the Johnson Building.
The purpose of the forum is to get community input on the possibility of wireless initiatives in the City of Boston. This includes opinions on how such a network would benefit the residents and what are the populations that would gain the most from a low-cost or free wireless network in parts of the city.
There’s a press release about the event if you’re curious. BostonWAG is also preparing a “WiFi 101” info sheet that will be online soon and available at the forum.
