Heading up to NYC to be on the panel for Alex Wagner’s show NOW on MSNBC…lots of interesting topics so tune in if you can.
On the other hand, you may not see this post, because Amtrak’s wi-fi is terribly spotty. I find that wi-fi works much better on planes than trains. Is it just that Amtrak hasn’t made the necessary investments in the technology that Delta and US Airways have or is this harder on conveyances that move on the ground vs through the air? Any engineers out there who could answer that?
I remain a huge advocate of universal wi-fi though I must say that I can’t yet defend the economics of it. It would be a huge boon to bloggers everywhere but cost/benefit would have to show productivity gains…I can imagine that to be the case, but haven’t done or seen the analysis.
Speaking of electronic engineering questions, would this be possible: design a chip to go in guns that “shuts them off” in certain places, like schools? Sounds plausible to me.
