Wireless In The City

People just can’t stop talking about Wi-Fi. We’re well past the “what it is” stage. We’re onto the “what does it all mean” stage. The New York Times looks at the Bryant Park Wi-Fi network and how the network fits with the purpose of the park. I’m not sure it does though. I love the idea of a free Wi-Fi network. But I don’t want to be surfing the web or checking email with a scarf, hat and topcoat. I’d rather pay money to sit in a warm, covered coffee shop. And if its sunny outside, I want to enjoy the park, not squint trying to read my laptop screen. Now if they offered free Wi-Fi at Grand Central and Penn Stations, that would be useful.
