Hotspot Hookups

Awesome. Robin has been saying for a while now that he’d love to have some sort of online hub for his local coffeehouse, so the hordes of laptoppers inside could communicate in digital space. Well, here you go.

Erk... brain... seizing up... link is... too cool... to fully comprehend--!

Go Bears! See, guys, the East Bay's got plenty of cool stuff. Come visit!!! :-)

Seriously, that's a wonderful neighborhood, not far from Rockridge Bart. The Elmwood/Rockridge area is filled with yummy food, random bookstores, and gorgeous gardens. I wish I spent more time there.

Personally I'd just be interested in seeing a survey of laptop and wifi usage at cafes. It's sort of the idealized modern pastime in my mind, but I wonder what it actually is. Are people doing work? Are they students? Artists? Programmers? Activists? Vacationers? Retirees?

ask and ye shall receive: The UC Berkeley wi-fi survey

NOTE- snarkmarket's annoyingly paranoid spamfilter won't let me post the url for the survey! so you'll have to piece it back together from this:

http://wifisurvey.notlong.com

Matt's note: Added the link and took "notlong.com" (hee!) out of MT-Blacklist.

For the record, Snarkmarket's spamfilter isn't 'annoyingly paranoid,' it's 'enthusiastically vigilant.'

Thx for the link, though -- that rules.
