The most important potential impact of wireless communications will be on the resource ecologies of cities. Connecting people, resources, and places to each other in new combinations, on a real-time basis, has the potential to reduce drastically the amount of hardware—from gadgets, to buildings—that we need to function effectively. The principle of ‘use, not own’ can apply to buildings, roads, vehicles, offices, equipment – and for that matter people. We don’t have to own a thing (or a person) – just know where to find it (or him). This lighter urban ecology will arrive faster if wireless communication infrastructures are pervasive and, ideally, free. It’s for this reason that Doors is supporting the first ever Municipal Wireless Conference (MW05SF). The event brings together a broad range of buyers, vendors, service providers, integrators, consultants, policy-makers, and other interested groups. The diversity of this group makes it hard to reach – so our main contribution (with your help) is to help spread the word to people who might like to attend the event, but would not otherwise hear about it.
Who’s responsible for municipal infra?
