No sooner do I return from ICANN Vancouver and the spotty Internet access of travel than I find blogs bristling with talk about FON, Martin Varsavsky’s project to bring wifi sharing to the masses: Open your wifi access point to the FON-using public, and get access to theirs wherever you go. Or, if you’re a “Bill” rather than a “Linus,” you can be paid for offering access. Either way, you win, getting more value out of the Internet connection you’ve already paid for.
Some Linuses have been wondering if they will be able to connect to access points in other countries? The answer is YES.
