In between grading final exams today, I did a little searching to follow up on my previous post. Found two helpful-looking sites:
- KCWireless, a WiKi for the Kansas City area. Their eventual goal is to blanket KC with wireless access nodes.
- Wifinder, a directory for the whole world, basically. However, it looks like its focus is on commercial access providers, which is fine, but it wouldn’t hurt to find some free access points, either, now would it? I was able to find an entry for a café called The Internet Exchange in Manchester using this directory.
I believe this is the Wired stuff (on wireless) that Chuck was referring to in the comments.
Yes, I know wifi is not really that big a deal, but it still carries enough of a gee-whiz factor for me to get excited about it.
