I Agree with The Shifted Librarian!! WiFi @ Conferences
Although I'm not attending ALA, I agree with Jenny the Shifted Librarian about WiFi at conferences! Yes, that was me prowling the DC Hilton in Dupont Circle at CIL 2003 looking for a hotspot with my Powerbook. (Heavens -- was I "war driving?" ) There really were none to be found but two passworded networks and the T-Mobile Hotspot at Starbucks. As I've written before, I'm a huge proponent for free WiFi through community initiatives, altruism or good ole library access. I guess we'd put the ISPs out of business if cities and towns were blanketed by huge free wireless clouds of access....
Look for me at IL 2003 with my Powerbook...seeking a hot spot around the conference zone!
