San Francisco aims to bridge digital divide

SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco plans to rapidly expand the number of venues where residents and tourists can get free wireless Internet access and will soon make free computers available at housing projects and community centers, Mayor Gavin Newsom said.

Earlier this year, the city set up a public WiFi center in Union Square, a prime shopping area. The Civic Center, which is near City Hall, Ferry Plaza, which is a waterfront commuter hub recently refurbished into a gourmet food market, and Portsmouth Square, otherwise known as the entrance to Chinatown, are next.
