  1. The article’s not totally without merit, but it might be worth pointing out that Cafes can actually use their Wifi to create a *more* social environment. A splash page with links to a message/notice board, web chat, an FTP server/Open Share for files etc can make an enormous difference to the feeling of community. Even better, it encourages you to come back to the same Cafe.
    I’ve met a whole bunch of interesting random people hanging out in Wifi equipped cafes just through Ichat with Rendevous/Bonjour switched on… If the pretty girl over the other side of the room’s got her Ibook on her lap, it’s an even easier ice-breaker than fronting up to her table. Just a thought

  2. good point LG, but we still are waitng for that cool application. and the number of mac users is still so little compared to people i see lugging around their IBM or Dell machines… well hopefully someone will come up with a real social networking software 😉
