WiFi Schmi-Fi

So I'm at the Internet Librarian conference in Monterey, California, where Information Today has wisely decided to provide free wireless for all conference attendees in the conference center (where you can reach it, anyway). Except that it wasn't working this morning. Whichever company is providing it wasn't providing it well.

So Bill from ITI brought in a wireless router and now you can access the network "Schmi-Fi," at least in the DeAnza Room where the public library track is happening today.

And happening it is. Michael Stephens has a full room of public librarians here. Whoo-hoo!!!! I think this helps point out the dearth of conference sessions and meetings for technology-oriented public librarians, especially those at small- and medium-sized libraries. I hope ITI will continue to try and fill this need.
