Free the wifi

Boston’s doing pretty well in the community wireless sphere, although perhaps not as well as Portland. Now Somerville is talking about business-based free community wireless networks.

Not only is this fun times for me, it’s got cool potential as a prototype that could easily catch on elsewhere. Michael Oh is thinking of each network he builds as an instance of a larger concept, rather than building one-offs, which is the kind of thinking that makes a difference in the long term.

Meanwhile, there’s a Starbucks opening next to my laundromat of choice, so I can get online while doing laundry.
