Wireless Communities: the Big Issues

Last week I was privileged to present a talk on wireless Internet access at the 60th annual meeting of the Canadian Library Association. My thanks to Jane Dysart and Stephen Abram for the invitation.

Here is a copy of my presentation.

My co-presenter was Michael Vandenburg of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library in Ontario. Our talks dovetailed nicely; he spoke of how his library has taken a pragmatic approach to wireless. In particular, they most recently have worked with a private company that uses an innovative approach to authenticating the public: they text-message the patron's cell phone with an access code.
