In this well-written, by-the-numbers article explaining Wi-Fi to mainstream readers, John Furrier, one of the founders of Etherlinx, is presented as an average user: I've met and talked with John several times, before and after he left Etherlinx well over a year ago, and he's an experienced Wi-Fi guy. No lack of props to him (and his decision to leave a firm he helped start that became a non-starter), but the reporter should have identified him as a current or former industry member, not an average Joe (or John). John reads this site, so we may get more information on this yet.
A few weeks ago, The New York Times covered home Wi-Fi and used as its lead subject Oren Michels, who is the president of WiFinder, identifying him in his full-time day job as the head of a human resources benefits outsourcing firm.
Surely there are actual consumers out there.
