Gavin Newsom's Grand Decree

Philadelphia was the first American city to work on making Wi-Fi accessible to all of its residents. But San Francisco's mayor Gavin Newsom has brought it to the Geneva Convention: "It is to me a fundamental right to have access universally to information." Right, and that's what it takes for a citizen body to govern itself. Newsom also touted Wi-Fi's ability to ease communications in disaster situations, and oh yeah, there's that whole economic competiveness thing. But those have nothing on a political declaration about fundamental rights.
