From the source "Access (to wi fi)is free in parks and other outdoor spaces", I found it funny how this will encourage people to go to the park, but to surf the net on lap tops.
Bring on 2050.

hey, it's better to surf the net in the open air than locked in a den with a privacy window facing a brick building.

They're talking about putting one here in Portland, but it'd be a ways off... I think it'd be pretty cool to not have to hop on a free node or wardrive and just be able to hop on anywhere... With any luck they'll have coverage out in SE and it'll support WEP so I can hop on with my PDA...
