New York's code-loving mayor had at least one more big tech announcement to make before handing over the keys to the city at the end of the year. Mayor Mike Bloomberg announced plans to launch a free WiFi network in Harlem, spanning 95 of the uptown neighborhood's blocks. The size makes it the "largest continuous free outdoor public wireless network in the nation," by New York City's count, bringing access to 80,000 residents -- a number that includes 13,000 people living in public housing. The rollout will occur in phases, culminating next May, with five years of initial coverage currently planned. More details on the rollout can be found in the source link below.
