San Francisco Aims For Citywide WiFi

“We will not stop until every San Franciscan has access to free wireless Internet service,” he said in his annual state of the city address. “These technologies will connect our residents to the skills and the jobs of the new economy.”

“No San Franciscan should be without a computer and a broadband connection.”

We love this idea, but realistically we have to wonder how easy it would be to implement. San Francisco is a very large city and surely home to plenty of hackers and others that would abuse this system. Apparently there is already free WiFi in Union Square and other sections of the city, although there is no mention on how they prevent would-be hackers from abusing the system in those areas.
