Swindon Switch On
In November Swindon Borough Council announced that Swindon will become the first UK wi-fi town, where every resident can receive free wireless access for a limited period each day, at the cost of £450,000 of taxpayer's money.
Today Highworth is the first borough of the scheme to go live.
I'm not sure that it will be successful, and it reminds me of Swindon supposedly being at the cutting edge of Harold Wilson's 'white heat of technology' with cable tv - it didn't quite work out as planned.
However, of course, there's the magic roundabout which in my view is a work of genius.
