Chicago, Illinois: "Mayor Daley’s Grand CivicNet May Actually Be 'CivicNot' "

A pessimistic assessment of Chicago's once-promising, now delayed and diluted CivicNet project to link government facilities with fiber.
"It was supposed to include the resources of many companies, city agencies and the CTA [Chicago Transit Authority] and its rights of way throughout the city. The initial thrust of this project was to provide the city with a solid network infrastructure that could be the foundation of communications for the new millennium. It was a great idea on the surface, but after five years since its initial announcement and some typical fanfare, where is it really at?"
