“The Philadelphia Story: Learning from a Municipal Wireless Pioneer”

Tomorrow, New America Foundation will release my report on Wireless Philadelphia. If you read my blog, you know I’ve followed this project closely for the past two years. The report is a summation of my observations, focusing on lessons municipalities and community activists can apply to similar projects in their communities.

As part of the release, New America Foundation (NAF) and the Philly IMC Media Mobilizing Project (MMP) are hosting a public discussion on Wireless Philadelphia. They had originally planned it for 2-5pm at the Ethical Society, but then late last week the City Council Committee on Technology and Information Services announced a hearing for 1pm on Wireless Philadelphia.

Once they found out about our event, the City Council invited NAF and MMP to hold it in City Council Chambers immediately following the Committee’s hearing. So now I would like to invite you all to attend:

The Philadelphia Story: Learning from a Municipal Wireless Pioneer
Tuesday, December 11, 2007
1pm: Committee Hearing
2pm: Public discussion
City Hall, room 400

Printed copies of the report will be available at the event. I’ll post a PDF tomorrow, after I catch my breath.

    I’m a reporter with Metro newspaper, and we’re interested in writing a story about the findings in your report for Tuesday’s paper. This has been a big issue for the city, of course, and we would love to get some insight before the report is released. If possible, please give me a call at (215) 717-2643 before 6 pm Monday.

    Thank you in advance,
    Solomon L.
