Tech capitol of the world???

The SJMN reports this morning that San Jose opened its new city hall over the weekend -- complete with all sorts of high-tech gadgetry -- except for a Web site.

Glitch taints glitz at City Hall [SJMN, 10.18.2005]
YOU'D NEVER GUESS S.J. IS CAPITAL OF SILICON VALLEY BY THIS OVERSIGHT
San Jose spent millions on all the latest technological gadgetry for its new City Hall, but when it came time to cut the ribbon on the building Saturday morning, it was apparent city officials had come up $125 short.
That's $125, as in the amount needed to keep its Web site active.
So from 3:30 p.m. Friday until 1 p.m. Saturday, including during the grand opening ceremony, the public could not access the city Web site at www.sanjoseca.gov, and city employees couldn't receive external e-mail.


You can check out their new City Hall online here. They have a horrible map and information about all the art in the building. They also have a Web-cam, if you are interested in those kinds of things, although it didn't seem to be working for me.
