I was scrolling through blogs this evening, specifically those blogs that are Houston related and came across one that stated that Houston is going to go wireless.
Our mayor, Bill White, who I love and adore is promoting a wireless plan for all of Houston. He has a real challenge on his hands, this is a big big city. Apparently the rollout is going to cover 600 square miles! This will be the biggest rollout ever. Can anyone spell ambition?
Apparently Houstonians will have to pay a "small fee" for the service. I wonder if it is something we will be billed for whether we use it or not...
It's getting pretty scary how dependent on technology we've become.
I asked a colleague the other day if he went to bed tonight and then woke up the next day and discovered it was 1985, how would he react? Would he go nuts without his e-mail and cell phone? I wonder if I would? I didn't even have an answering machine back then. No call notes. Of course, I would do the OBVIOUS. And that would be that I would invest every nickel and dime I had in Microsoft & Apple. And then later, in Enron, too. Hell yeah, and then sell like hell in 2000.
So anyway, I think it's sort of cool we're going wireless.
Oh, and here's the article
