Fullerton is installing free wifi in the downtown area.

One thing in the article which trips me out is that Fullerton is handing laptop computers to every student in 3rd through 8th grades. I don’t understand the rationale behind that. In that age group, one would hope the schools would be more interested in the “Three Rs” than in broadband wireless access. No matter how much of a technophile I am, I still think the basics are important to build on.

According to Om Malik, Six Apart to buy Live Journal

So, I can’t escape Movable Type, can I? I changed my site to use WordPress because I didn’t like the way MT was moving (Pay up, bitches!). I keep my LJ paid up even though I use my site to post mirrored items to it. Why do I do such a bizarre thing? Because LJ has features nobody else does. LJ has threaded comments and userpics and mood icons and all that jazz, but most importantly – Livejournal has Friends Pages. Having a single-stop place to look at an aggregated list of posters you like to read is a Good Thing, and not one that Typepad has any interest in implementing. Also fairly important – LJ has no ads and lower fees for paid accounts. TypePad does not have a free user level, so I can only imagine what they’ll do with the five million free LJ accounts. If they’re doing this to gain users, they pretty much have to let the leeches hang on.

If SixApart buys LJ, I hope they leave it alone as a wholly-owned subsidiary, rather than merging it into the Typepad mess.
