I'm working for one of my projects to make Steem grow - as far as I can, of course.
SteemPoint is a project born watching the Steem Park created by @sndbox in New York City. I'd like to create something physical, useful and appealing in my city, Pistoia (Italy). In these days I'm talking to the City Administration about it.
Steem Point should be
- - a free hotspot - with Steemit as starting page (or a better frontpage people will see when they will start using the hotspot)
- - a urban furniture to redevelop a corner of the city or of one of its parks.
- - a cosy and pleasant meeting place for the people living around there.
The sketches I'm showing here are just some ideas, since the choice of the place will affect the development of the plan.
In my city there are really many producers of ornamental plants, so part of the structure should be filled with plants or grass.
I'm not an architect, but I worked for many years with my uncle Giuliano which was a urban planner for at least 40 years.
I hope to receive suggestions and help from the Steem community and from the @sndbox team in this project.
The idea to provide a meeting point AND a free web hotspot comes from the relative rarity of free access point in this city. Besides, that allows to provide informations about Steem to the users going there to find free wifi. A little outdoor router placed in a safe site next to the furniture is enough for that. Maintenance will be operated by private shopkeepers in the same park.
If the project - with the help of the Steem community - will be carried out, we can think to repeat the format in other cities.
