For Akron, Ohio, the transition from Rubber Capital to something else has been gradual. Once a thriving centerpiece of industry in the United States, many rubber companies have moved from the region, though Goodyear remains. The legacy of rubber is still all over the city.

Anita: Thanks for the information. "Cleveland rocks" as Drew Carey sings during the intro of his show! ;) Have you heard about other cities / towns / areas that have invested in WiFi and public locations with Internet connections?

Martin, I live near Akron. It is in Northeast Ohio, about an hour south of Cleveland and Lake Erie. Naturally I was intrigued to wake up this morning, come to the site, and see this article here on BizSugar -- small world.

And I've heard of Knotice -- even know one or two people from the company. Cool that they are growing so fast.

cb711: Inspiring post! I have lived in Troy, OH. Where is Akron located? Maybe this is "Who's Your City" (to paraphrase the title of Richard Florida's book)? I like the initiative to create WiFi spots in the downtown area.
