Martin O’Malley Believes Wi-Fi Access Is A ‘Human Right’

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) said “Wi-Fi is a human right” while comparing the generational differences between baby boomers and young people. […] “Younger people are choosing to live in cities,” […]. “They realize that connections to each other are making us better. That Wi-Fi is a human right. That proximity is important to entrepreneurship, access to capital and talent and diversity. There is an opportunity there for us as a nation to embrace that new perspective.” O’Malley is rumored to be laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential campaign. – Amber Ferguson,HuffPost Tech

NRP boats now have live video streaming capability

Maryland’s Natural Resources Police recently added another tool to help fulfill their role as the state’s maritime homeland security agency. NRP boats now have live video streams.

[Candus Thomson, Public Info. Officer] said the live video feed will help NRP in emergency situations. “Let’s just say, for example, you have a boat in distress in the Chesapeake Bay,” Thomson said. “An officer with a real-time streaming camera on board gives commanders a real good sense of what’s going down and what other resources could be used.” – Josh Bollinger,Star Democrat via CecilWhig
