Democratic Convention Wifi Ban?

nym | 06:14 PM

No confirmation yet if this is legitimate, but wi-fi networking news says:

"Aaron Bailey of 601am.com, a staffer for a publication covering the [democratic national convention], was told by several authorities that Wi-FI interfered with ´┐Żbroadcast television signals´┐Ż and was thus banned."

This seems like a troublesome idea as it shifts the political reporting balance significantly out of the blogosphere for the democratic national convention. At least it's not a cellphone ban though. The future-saavy blogger Regine from we-make-money-not-art says "Read also 601Am for an insight about the (dis)organization of the event."
