Is It Time for All of Us to Just Link Up?

Hosted by

Mayor Villagraigosa wants Wi-Fi for all of Los Angeles, so even the poorest people could go on the Internet anywhere, any time. He says that low-cost, high-speed Internet access for everybody would close the digital divide, provide better access to government services, and keep LA on the cutting edge of the Information Age. Will it take off like it did in Philadelphia or run into roadblocks, as it has in tech-savvy San Francisco? Would it also turn the LAPD into Big Brother and disconnect people from other human beings?  We hear the pros and cons.
