Washington State ferry system to get continuous Wi-Fi: Don't ask me why the local papers (I'm based in Seattle) don't have this story, and Alan Reiter found it in Computerworld, but it's an interesting one to say the least. The Washington State ferry system carries 15,000 daily commuters, and they believe they've got the right audience to use a Wi-Fi service. They certainly do--especially if it will work in the waiting line and on the boats. Many drivers have to wait 1 to 2 hours to get on a ferry, and if they could be productive during that time, well, it might shave some time off the rest of their working day, no? [via Alan Reiter]
