The Promise of Wireless

Wired has a story about the effect of wireless on agriculture, theme parks, health care, and conferences.

So speaketh O’Reilly’s Rael Dornfest about a recent conference with ubiquitous WiFi access:

“people weren’t disappearing back to their rooms to check email between sessions. They’d just sit down in one of the common areas and log on. Because everyone was gathering in the same place, there was a lot more spontaneous discussion. Also, the sessions themselves became more interactive.”

It’s all part of Wired’s [url=http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.05/unwired/]special feature about wireless[/url] which covers everything from [url=http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.05/unwired/network.html]getting connected[/url] to [url=http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.05/unwired/futurewifi.html]where it’s going[/url]. Also really interesting is a story about the ‘supposed’ [url=http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.05/unwired/convergence_pr.html]death of 3G and convergence of WiFi with telecomm[/url].
