What I want from Web 2.0
Just posted this to VentureBlog:
Andrew, "David" and "modest" are two words I would not have expected to see in the same sentence, but bully to you for breaking new ground!
Good to see the both of you (and many more friends) at the recent BlogOn shindig. The night before I spent two hours trying to pay $15.99 for 24 hours of broadband connection only to have to debug their system myself (IP address assignment problem). There were a couple of weak WiFi signals available out the window, but most were WEP protected and breaking out AirSnort just to check mail seemed like overkill. Although Any@Web caught a couple of wardrivers trying to hack the WiFi connection! In the morning, the surf reports for Ocean Beach said it was small, blown out bad surf. We went anyway and had a great time in medium, decent shape, no wind waves. On the way to the conference the MapQuest directions were wrong. There was voice cell phone but not data coverage. My Jabra 250 Bluetooth headset randomly paired with another device and forgot all about the new Nokia 6230 it was recently in love with (bought from Taiwan - not available in the US - and hacked onto ATTWS). Lots of people on the WiFi connection made it frustratingly slow. Ouch! where did that surly rant come from and where is it going?
