In the latest Community Podcast, we look at an organization that's working to bring the internet to all New Yorkers, in and outside of their apartments. Most of us think of using the internet as a solitary, indoor activity. NYCwireless thinks differently. By "lighting up" public parks with free wi-fi access, they're allowing New Yorkers to connect outdoors and helping everyone to create and participate in a new community.
We talk with Dana Spiegel and Laura Forlano from NYCwireless about their mission and projects. We also look at the challenges they face as they work to make internet access an accepted public service.
