Alan, from Buffalo Pundit
, has taken a great idea and turned it into the BBC
. That's right the first ever Buffalo Blogger Convention.
Thursday - May 26th
I'm not sure if Alan has a string of awards to pass out and aside from all the innovative tech stuff to discuss I think at least some of the discussion will include how we can best advocate for a Wi-Max cloud over Buffalo. It's happening in Portland
and it should happen here in Buffalo. I'd like to see us reach out to tech, civic and biz groups that desire to do the same.
Imagine a totally wired city, Vonage
everywhere...a local entrepreneur and "urbex" partner of mine told me that the main trunk of the entire internet connecting New York City and Chicago runs right through Buffalo, down Elmwood Avenue.
Just caught this about Buffalo Wi-Fi
. Site says the old Apollo Theatre, now Apollo Media Center
over here in the 'hood is a wi-fi hot spot. Didn't know that.
I'm sure we'll be mapping "wi-fi hot spots" in Buffalo
- both public and not-so public - by this time next week. Know of some...let me know.
Come and check it out and let Alan
know if you are planning to attend!
