Stolen from Slashdot is this link about wireless communications forming a viral worldwide network that could fly beneath the radar of the telephone companies and without any of the hassles of other spectral broadcasts. Pretty cool concept.

I think the main problem with the wireless network is the fact that is mainly an rich/middle-class urban phenomenon. One of the main reasons telephone companies have such huge exclusive deals is the deal with the government to bring access to everyone. Also, what happens when you move into the business districts? Not saying the idea isn’t great, just it has quite a few more obstacles then the author of the story thinks.
