George, George, George of the (wireless) Jungle….

I know you do this too.

You’re on a Manhattan bus with your PSP or PDA or laptop or whatever, and you decide to try surfing the web, just to see if you can. At this point, Manhattan would seem to be a dense cloud of connectivity, but I prefer to liken it to a jungle, which means that as you cross from one zone to another, never losing connectivity for more than a few seconds, you are swinging from vine to wireless vine, neh?

This is a partial list of wireless LANs I encountered while web surfing aboard a Manhattan bus:

You can learn a lot about a person from what he or she names their network. I know, I know, a brillliant insight, but hey…I found it interesting…

  1. Hey Rob,
    I know very little about computers but I was wondering if you’re the same Rob Parrilla that graduated from Spellman. If you are, I’d love to hear from you. I do understand if you don’t want to get in touch, but I would appreciate it if you’d let me know that as well. You can e-mail me at LGO65@verizon.net. Hope to hear from you. Lisette
