Back home in Minneapolis on the iMac today...

If WiFi can make it in NoDak it can make it everywhere- I found free access at the library of a little bible college in Ellendale, ND, as well as NDSU in Minot. Reportedly all the NDSU campus libraries around the state are getting WiFi. Up on by the Canadian border the Turtle Mountain Reservation tribal government is putting in WiFi and hinting that their status as a sovereign nation allows them to increase power over FCC limits to cover their 72 square mile reservation, where 1/3rd of homes don't even have a phone. Meanwhile back in Minneapolis our city thinks it will cost $500,000,000 to give the city WiFi and is offering their lightpoles to vendors. Apparently they've already forgotten that Ricochet is still on their lightpoles waiting to be turned back on...

I live in small town North Dakota and I was putting a laptop in for a client and picked up two open access points. One from the college kids living upstairs and one from the pizza place across the street.


We're a college town and each student gets a laptop computer so I guess the chances of wireless here are higher than normal but still...
