Last night was the One Economy (OE) Annual Gala (OE6), I bumped in to an ally for our project.

Gail McGuire of East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation’s Neighborhood and Economic Development Department.  Once she heard of our project she offered ideas for community issues and involvement. As we put together the program, we will call on her and her organization to participate.

As we move forward we ceratinly will want to reach out to partners.

 At the gala, Mayor Gavin Newsom was honored for his work to create free wireless access for the entire city of San Francisco.

“San Francisco will be the first city in the nation to provide FREE wireless access to every resident,” exclaimed Newsom. He told the story of how a meeting Rey Ramsey, the CEO of OE, inspired the mayor’s competitive spirit and provide free access as opposed to Philadelphia’s access at a price. He celebrated the relationship with Google and Earthlink. 

I bumped in to Emy Tseng, who is now working for the City’s TechConnect initiative. Emy was with the Community Technology Foundation of California when we first became aquainted. Now, she works on behalf of making free wireless a reality.

BTW, NTen is holding a day long conference on municipal wireless, November 10th.

San Francisco’s municipal wireless project will mean that you can create social change in new, bold ways. Soon, your organization, your clients, and your stakeholders will have access to free and low cost wireless Internet access through San Francisco’s TechConnect project.
