What a Mesh

Marikina City will soon enjoy the fruits of a wireless mesh network.

And why not? Marikina has always been reputed to initiate things ahead of the rest. Trailblazing governance. That is Mayor Marides Fernando's style. And for good. Wasn't it long ago that Marikina was known to be Little Singapore? And now especially at the Municipio most employees try to speak English as an initial step towards mimicking the bright side of Singapore.

More than a year ago I read this article about a company called Tropos which seemed to have pioneered in providing the technology to local governments in the U.S.

And I immediately recognized that this would be something our Mayor will eagerly do.

And so here it is now!!!
