The fact that cities are going broke over a lot of over extensions of their bonding authority among other things, is exactly why I urge caution.
I do think getting it done is important, but everyone at risk needs to really understand the potential, both up and down, and also see that this is not all that is required to profit from better connectivy, you must train the current and future workforce to do PRODUCTIVE things with it.
