They flipped the switch today on Portland's free municipal wi-fi network. When completed next year it will cover 95% of Portland with free wi-fi coverage (advertisement supported, ad free for $20 a month...) This is really interesting. I can see teachers and students on class field trips taking along one of the laptops to blog the trip and upload photographs for the students back at the school. The network isn't built out to my part of town yet, but I'm thinking I'll take a drive down to the initial coverage area today and take a look.
