Submission + - Taipei - The World's First Major Cyber City

jcdenhartog writes: The following story from Digital Communities: p?id=101773 contains the remarks of Mayor Ma Ying-jeou at W2i Taipei on the wide use of WiFi and other technologies throughout the city.
Some examples are, offering cell phones to guests of a hotel which provide information services through WiFi, and real-time transfer of information between ambulance paramedics and the hospital.
An impressive accomplishment for a large city, though it does raise questions about Big Brother.
