A while ago I met Gail McGuire, Assistant Project Manager, East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation. Upon describing our ECC Connected! project, she was excited to help. She is working with Lion Creek Crossings, a multi-family housing development in East Oakland. As her organization is serving the same area as ECC we can work togther to identify key community issues to use in training as well as in developing the online civic action component. Very exciting and happy to have Gail and her project to work with!

San Francisco has generated considerable attention from broadband-wireless stakeholders around the world ever since EarthLink and partner Google bid to provide the city with an ubiquitous Wi-Fi infrastructure, in part through a two-tiered advertising-based model supporting free public access.

Chris Vein, Senior Technology Advisor to the Mayor of San Francisco and Executive Director of the Department of Telecommunications and Information Services, is heading up the City’s  negotiations with EarthLink. At the W2i Digital Cities Convention in London, Olympia Exhibition Centre, September 25–26, 2006, he joined participating IT professionals and field practitioners from municipal agencies from the U.K., Europe, and the U.S. presenting their plans and experiences deploying broadband-wireless applications and services in their communities. The following is adapted from his remarks.

SanFrancisco’s Digital Inclusion Strategy

The City and County of San Francisco is developing a comprehensive Digital Inclusion Strategy in order to bridge San Francisco’s digital divide.  We invite you to provide comment and feedback on the initial draft document:
http://www.sfgov.org/site/tech_connect_index.asp?id=47976

The document outlines approaches that the City proposes to address the technology needs of its underserved residents including:

  • free and affordable internet access
  • affordable computers and equipment
  • training and support
  • relevant content and applications

We are soliciting initial feedback through November 11, 2006 and using that initial feedback to update the document for release by December . However, we welcome input throughout the process.

Comments can be sent to:
