Assuming you've heard about the recent water boiling crisis ?

Yes, they got it fixed today. I first noticed the low water pressure early Sunday but didn't know at the time why because in my neighborhood in Montrose they are replacing a 72" water line so I thought it might be related to that.

I was aware of proposed Kiosk locations: Stanford at Westheimer being one. When I saw this, I wondered if COH was finally going to install one of those Kiosk?

Im wondering why not across the street in the green of the RoW--- much more room for the crowds to assemble to view ;)

Maybe because that corner already has electricity?  I don't know if the kiosks are wireless, or if they tap into whatever internet system the city uses.

Does the City of Houston have its own government data network?  I know some other cities have gotten them for free in exchange for letting wireless carriers put 5G cell sites on top light poles.

I don't think the kiosks are either intended to or particularly like to gather crowds.  They are really more about being used by one or two people at a time.  I doubt accommodating the assembly of crowds was a consideration in their location decisions.
