One word…. Wardriving!
Okay, may words actually… Wireless, 802.11b, COOL! and that’s just a few of them. I’ve recently purchased an ORiNOCO Silver wireless PC card for my laptop. Since I don’t yet have an access point (AP) in my house, I decided to spend a few hours driving around my neighborhood…. I found numerous AP’s open to anybody who happens to be with in range.
IN LAYMANS TERMS: I drive up to a building (coffee house, cyber-cafe, someones house) and poof! I can surf the internet from my car!
I wonder if there’s anyone else in NY who’d like to exchange Access Points with me, or perhaps discuss upcoming coverage projects. I know of a few people trying to cover local recreational parks.
