Harvard Square will be transformed once again to "Hogwarts Square" on June 4th to welcome our guest J.K. Rowling and to set the scene for an announcement connecting one and all in "Aparecium" (the spell that makes invisible ink appear.)
Harvard Square, Cambridge - At 4 p.m. on Wednesday June 4th in front of the "Hogwarts Square" sign on the Out of Town News building, the Harvard Square Business Association will summon a new era of connectivity for muggles and wizards alike.
The medium for this timely message is the "2007 Popular Science Grand Award Winning Meraki," a wireless router that can stretch a single wired internet connection for miles or in this case around the diagonal streets and alleyways of Harvard Square.
Like the owls of Hogwarts, the Meraki is snow white and perched throughout Harvard Square rooftops and windows to bring lines of communication to all attuned.
For the past several months the Harvard Square Business Association in collaboration with the City of Cambridge, Harvard University, Harvard Square Business Owners and Property Owners have all worked together with Meraki and Anaptyx to provide FREE OUTDOOR PUBLIC WIRELESS ACCESS to the people!
Switch on your laptop, cell phone, or pocket PC and click on the Harvard Square access point to connect worldwide to friends and family, local and international news, Harvard Square daily news and events, or to blog, twitter, flicker and/or youtube your point of view.
Join us at 4 p.m. in front of the "Hogwarts Square" sign on the Out of Town News Kiosk for a press announcement with Special Guests from the City of Cambridge, Harvard University, and representatives from Meraki and Anaptyx.
