A Cabbie And A Tech Consultant All In One

from the it's-all-about-bundling dept

TechTV has a story about a NYC cab driver who also is a computer consultant – which he handles while driving his cab. He claims you can get plenty of work done while waiting at traffic lights. He has a laptop and a cell phone in his passenger seat (using the cell phone for dialup access) and works on problems while driving people around the city. If the problem is particularly troublesome, he’ll stop taking fares and even (occasionally) visit client sites. He apparently gets a lot of business from people he drives around, who are impressed with his technical knowledge.
