EFF: San Francisco WiFi failed due to Google
The Uberpulse blog recently posted a video with the Electronic Frontier Foundation founder, who claims San Francisco's municipal WiFi project died due to Google and its weird privacy claims.
According to EFF co-founder, John Gilmore, speaking at SOFCON, one of the reason the municipal WiFi project failed apart was that it was tied to tracking the location of everyone using the network and keeping that information forever in big Google database in the sky. And in addition to creating that privacy violation, trying to make money selling ads to those people.
