Grand Opening of Angex Corp.

Today’s currently the opening of Angex Corp., hoping it will go well. Thought a freelance consultants business was a good premise for one. I can strengthen my knowledge of many things, by doing projects. Not to mention the motivation by making the money.

Yesterday, I went to a NYCwireless meeting, and we got into an interesting talk about a guy in Michigan who got arrested over using a cafe’s Wi-Fi outside of the premises. He got charged $400, and had to do 40 hours of community service. The way I see it, if their network was (purposely) unsecured, it’s not his problem. Could anything like this have any implications for the wireless community…?

Also, we talked of a release of a new wireless router called FON, which lets you separate a piece of your bandwidth to give free wireless access. This portion is totally modifiable by the owner, and it’s segregated into it’s own public LAN. It puts priority on the private LAN though. This may be a tremendous leap for free wi-fi, but I want to see how ISPs will react to it. If you think about it, if you use a local resident’s wi-fi, you have no real incentive to buy high speed of your own, unless they just give you tremendously low bandwidth. May cut off on their profits, but then yet, p2p networking always seems to knock off big business.

    regarding on this topic, “a guy in Michigan who got arrested over using a cafe’s Wi-Fi outside of the premises. He got charged $400, and had to do 40 hours of community service. The way I see it, if their network was (purposely) unsecured, it’s not his problem. Could anything like this have any implications for the wireless community…?” I think people should be penalized for using someone’s unsecured network(except for the NYC Parks). The way I see it, if an unlocked car double parking outside does not give you the right to free ride or just like the subway for instance though its for the public it also doesnt give you a right to make money off it buy selling candies, even though you payed for the subway ticket. Get the point where I’m going hehehhe.

    The beauty of Information Technology we always have choices and options 😀
