From Tuesday, September 25, 2007 through Thursday, September 27, 2007 I'm attending WiMAX World USA 2007 in Chicago, Illinois USA at the McCormick Place convention complex.
Today is Conference Day 1; the exhibit area opens today.

The network in question is a Motorola-built "pre-commercial" network for Sprint XOHM, not merely a demo network slapped-up for WiMAX World.
