    New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has announced that the entire city of New Orleans will be blanketed by a free WiFi network within a year. This move is expected to boost the cityís economy that was all but destroyed from the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

    Thanks to Intel Corp., Tropos Networks and Pronto Networks who donated most of the hardware necessary for the project, these hardwares will be mounted on top of street lights in order to cover the whole city.

    The network will operate at a speed of 512 kilobits per seconds, until the cityís state of emergency is lifted, which will then drop to a 128 kilobits per seconds in accordance to state laws restricting government-owned internet services.

    It's nice to see that Mayor Nagin still has the city's priorities in order.

    Yeah, what an asshole.

    He should be in the same canoe as most of the N.O. police force: OUT OF WORK.

    Well he has already purchased a home in the Dallas area.

    Heck of a way to "roll your sleeves up" and show your fellow citizens you're going to stay and help out Nagin.

    N.O. is ferked up bad right now. People lost their homes, jobs, everything. I honestly don't think this project will be much of a help.

    The state is really a mess and we have no leadership to take charge and problem solve.

    Itís good to know that there is WIFI available throughout the entire city when there are still parts with no electricity and clean drinking water.

    multitask: n.

    Often used of humans in the same meaning it has for computers, to describe a person doing several things at once. The term multiplex, from communications technology (meaning to handle more than one channel at the same time), is used similarly.

    jargon

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Explain to me.

    What is wrong about doing more than one thing at a time?

    Sure the electric and water isn't up in all places yet, sure there are still houses not rebuilt. Is the suggestion that the people that are tasked with these are somehow going to be hindered because other "less urgent" tasks are being carried out ? Has this work stopped to carry out other tasks? Are resources being taken away ?
