  1. With Google help, I think it is Euskara (though I don’t speak it or Spanish). It is spoken in the Basque country (part of Spain and France)

  2. San Francisco Wifi Bedouin Flash Mob?

    I can just imagine someone from Alabama reading that and thinking “God is going to strike down those perverts on the west coast.”

  3. Euskara! That is awesome. It’s funny, but right across the street from my apartment is a wifi cafe called Eguna Basque — talk about synchronicity. Should have just run the post by them. 😛

    And Patrick, that is abosolutely hilarious. Like San Francisco needs another reason to be struck down by a venfeful God!

  4. Just a quick post from the third coast; Corpus Christi, TX

    Downtown – Agua Java Coffee house – good food, coffee and music.

    Southside – Cafe Calypso (inside Half Priced Books – score on 2 counts!)

    Uptown – Knuckleheads Restaurant (BBQ) and Biker Bar.

  5. Yes! It was my Basque blog the one that pingbacked Jackson’s post here. It’s a blog with a very limited subject: coffee & cafés.

    It’s interesting that suggestion to map these Cafes or New Office Spaces, but, well, there’s a Basque alternative to Plazes: Tagzania (available in English and a bunch of languages as well). So I mapped and tagged some places mentioned here with a tag New Office Space. I invite anyone to do the same. Like del.icio.us, for places, tags aggregate etc etc… For instance, these ones just In San Francisco. Enjoy!

  6. You mention chili’s and Panera locations. I know Panera WiFi is managed by ICOA, but do you know who manages the WiFi at Chili’s? Is it free or fee?

    It’ll be interesting to see who ends up taking care of the WiFi at Dunkin Donuts, OfficeMax and Staples who all have announced plans to include cafe-esque seating and WiFi in new stores. OfficeMax is actually supposed to roll out 70 of these stores already in 2006. Maybe they’ll make their announcements in 2007 as the newly designed stores’ rollout gains some momentum. It looks like most of these places are going for free WiFi. How long can Starbucks and McDonalds hold on to their fees in such an atmosphere?
