Cory Doctorow opportunistically plugs in to unplug the SXSW conference: Cory's a big fan of wireless, and the South by Southwest Conferences are a perfect venue. Cory advertised his availability by naming the ESSID BoingBoing.net.
Welcome a new wireless blog with a European slant: Tomas B. Krag of Denmark (Tak!) plans to write about wireless and mobile technologies with the perspective from European, and more specifically, Scandinavia. Given the innovations coming from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland, I look forward to his observations. (Tomas also notes that my item the other day about free access in Copenhagen was a limited deal late last year. It's now about US$3.50 for 30 minutes, US$6.00 per hour. Telia had planned to introduce service in SAS lounges; not sure if this part of the same network.)
Apparently, folks want AirPorts for less: the item from yesterday on turning a $150 RG-1100 from Agere into a $300 AirPort Base Station with a software update struck a chord. But can anyone articulate exactly why the AirPort Base Station software is better? The RG-1100 lacks a modem port, so you don't get that advantage. And you could already configure the RG-1100 from a Macintosh. I like the AirPort Admin Utility better than a Web-based front end, but that's about the only real advantage.
