Rambling with myUrbanSKY

Chicago is myUrbanSKY

It seems fitting that as we move myUrbanSKY into full launch mode here in Chicago, that among today's local news is the dismal fact that budget constraints are likely to close more school libraries.  Which means that students who need these resources the most will have even less access to the tools of knowledge.  And less opportunity to learn computer skills and expand their understanding through age-appropriate access to the Internet. 

myUrbanSKY was founded with the vision of delivering benefits-driven value to residents of urban neighborhoods.  In particular, affordable broadband access for families who need to 'connect' with the world at large. The fact that we're doing this by helping apartment building owners upgrade their properties and offer FREE 10MB high-speed Internet to their tenants makes this new venture even more exciting. 

It is, we hope, just the start of something good for everyone.
