I arrived late, I heard the last three speakers
A) One person who spoke was formerly in the Air Force and was representing
his private company. His company does DSL/internet wiring in low cost
housing across America. One ting he said was NYC's housing is regulated to
such an extent that it prevents business or separate entities to go in to
wire a building for high speed internet.
B) The next group was a fellow from www.nycwireless.com and a lady who works
in the housing projects in Riis Queens (I believe). The rep from
nycwireless spoke about how his organization can wire a building for around
3k for wireless depending on hardware availablity (he works for Cisco). The
lady made mention about her experience (she has an MBA, a masters in music,
she volunteered for the Peace Corp and a few other things). She spoke about
how important it is to bring high tech to the low cost housing projects and
how the organization she represents has made strides with getting people
involved using computers. One thing I should mention is the fellow from
nycwireless mentioned open source software.
C) The last person who spoke represented another non-profit organization.
He spoke about how his organization utilizes smart cards and mentioned how
they empower the individual. Not sure how that is supposed to empower the
There was talk about putting WiFi on telephone poles. There were a lot of
handouts I grabbed them all. The handouts have the names of the
organizations that spoke.
There will be another meeting December 9th I couldnt stick around and talk
to anyone because I had to get back to class.
