Well-known technology pundit, Dave Winer, writes about the wireless network: "Downtown Palo Alto is in a depression. Lots of For Lease signs. Even the most famous landmark, The Good Earth, is shuttered. I thought it would be a good investment for renewal of the business district to have free WiFi for University Avenue, to attract people to local businesses. This is something the city should be doing. A special tax for stores on the avenue. Get the occupancy rates back to their former level."
