For a while, we were kind of worried about this whole Philly Wifi deal. It didn’t really seem corrupt enough. And the prognosis didn’t look good: old school Philly contractors, crooks and council people still don’t really know what’s up with the internet. They’re still using payphones, stealing cigarettes off the backs of trucks and in general, carrying on in the ways that has inadvertently made Philly the last great Soviet Bloc city left standing. But today came great news: They kicked the press out of the last big WiFi meeting.
(Neff:) ìWe’re very proud of what we’re doing, what we’ve been able to negotiate. Itís just not at a point yet where we can share that information.î
(Dunn:) ìIf the public can’t be part of the meeting, how does the public find out?î
(Neff:) ìThrough a press release. We will certainly give you a call and let you know what’s going on.î
Ahh, sweet, sweet progress.
