I have commented about commercial self-interest related to municipal networks on this blog earlier (see this) and in this recent Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article. So, I will take the liberty of tooting my own horn in light of this article in Business 2.0. To what extent do you think the municpal networks "movement" is driven by unabashed commercial self interest? Or, do you think this is just a red herring and the firms who are profitting from this phenomenon are doing so as a by product of an overall social good?
