It's been a few months since we learned of the city's plans to study the need for and feasibility of a Chicago-wide wireless network. Since then, the group tasked with developing a strategy has evidently been pushing ahead: they're currently scheduling public hearings. The first of three will be held Thursday, the 21st, at Truman College, 1145 W. Wilson, in room 3641, and it starts at 6:30pm. Residents and businesses are welcome to testify; interested persons should contact Aileen Kim at 773/736-5594. (Future meetings on the South and West Sides will follow, though details are not yet available.)
