Open networks, wasn't that what they promised us when the first wireless computer features entered this world. There were visions of a hotspot on every bench in the park, in all public spaces, free access was just the dream. Or so it seemed. In the hotels in Europe you pay for three hours of access 10 €, in the US in many coffee shops when you drink or eat 5 $ worth you have unlimited acces. My own network at home is open and there are two others nearby. And now I just had to try whether I could e-mail and blog already from my 12th floor. Obviously somebody has a free network and I don't even have a phone yet... So this blog is meant as a hymn to free networks...
