Hotspots for customers only

by

Speeder and Earl's on Pine Street in Burlington, one of my favorite wi-fi-enabled cafes, has recently encrypted its network. The baristas keep the password, which changes daily. Only paying customers can now get access. So no more parking out front and checking your email.

I noticed this morning that Bill Simmon and friends at Candleblog are discussing the situation.
