I wrote earlier about the game changers and how creative people no longer practice their hobbies in the private sphere but rather in networks and communities. The ‘maker culture’ is growing stronger and we see a growing ‘do-culture’ covering more and more areas in society.

Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites's curator insight, June 3, 2013 7:35 PM

You came down to San Diego to visit little Italy, booked your Pacific INN room ahead of time and even got extra days to enjoy San Diego. After taking a walk down in Little Italy you decide that you want to check other surroundings perhaps Gaslamp Quarter, Hillcrest or even old town. No matter which neighborhood you choose to visit you will be delighted to get to visit this city and have a great time with your family and friends.

CA: Hayward could get high-speed fiber-optic network | San Jose Mercury News

CA: Hayward could get high-speed fiber-optic network | San Jose Mercury News | The E2G2 Neighborhood Network | Scoop.it

Lightning-fast Internet connections could be coming to local businesses, using a private-public model that created Lit San Leandro, a fiber-optic network that encircles that city.

 

The same company that created the high-speed network in San Leandro wants to expand into its neighbor to the south as High-Speed Hayward, which would utilize existing underground city conduit to house an 18-mile loop of cable. Businesses could tap into the network, receiving and sending data over the Internet in a fraction of the time it takes with broadband, said Lit San Leandro CEO Jim Morrison.

 

"Fiber optic is much, much faster," he said.

 

In exchange for Hayward allowing the cable to be run through its conduit, the city would have access to 10 percent, or 30 strands of the network, Morrison said. "It would effectively be theirs," he said. Thirty fiber strands could carry several thousand times more data than what is used at City Hall, according to a staff report.

 

The Hayward City Council will be briefed on the proposal during a work session Tuesday night, but will not vote on it.

 

High-Speed Hayward, the tentative name of the project, would first focus on biotech businesses in the industrial area west of Hesperian Boulevard.

 

"We're very interested in the biotech community," Morrison said. "Genome research is very data-intensive, and our product would allow large quantities of data to be moved super-fast on the Internet."

 

High-Speed Hayward could be a boon to the city, said Councilman Al Mendall. "I'm excited about its potential to help us attract high-tech and biotech companies to the city," he said.
