Yes! The title is absolutely correct WiMax is getting it’s official U.S. debut in Baltimore, Maryland. I’m incredibly excited about Baltimore getting WiMax because I live here :-) and I will be one of the 1st to test the new service. I’m also happy about Baltimore gertting some solid National tech attention, alot of tech attention is always given to the West Coast or Masachusetts as if they are the only places thriving in tech. Headsup to the Valley – there’s a whole other tech economy happening outside of your backyard – stick your head and look around you might just find some great tech innovation or partenrs in Baltimore, MD. Baltimore is full of incredible tech companies and innovative entrepreneurs. The tech talent in Baltimore is really incredible but often overlooked by the media. In case you didn’t know Maryland has recently been ranked #2 as as top State in Technology and Science, according to Milken Institute. YES, Maryland #2 ahead of #4 ranked California. view study

Stay tuned to the blog or follow me on Twitter for my WiMax journey. I’ll be buying an express card today and will shoot some video to document the WiMax experience.
