Update: The National Storm

Well, just for the record, the national storm over BellSouth’s taking back the building it had given New Orleans because the city dared to offer its citizens free wifi over a city-owned network has yet to abate. Intelliseek’s blogpulse (a nifty resource that I just discovered; recommended) rated the story in the Washington Post that started the uproar the most popular story to discuss on Monday. (Tuesday’s stats have yet to be compiled.) This is a story that was published on Saturday. For it to remain at the top for that long is unusual. And should make somebody at BellSouth nervous.
The graph view that this site produces is even more disturbing. For BellSouth. That’s a mighty steep climb. It can’t go on for long.

Can it?
