Well, wi-fi continues to be a super-hot story in newspapers both near and far. The Boston Sunday Globe ran this good but basic article (the front page, top of the fold) in the Globe North regional subsection.

Great quotes from my partner in wi-fi crime Erik Crago and Chamber/eCoast liaison Ginny Griffith. The The dead-tree version of the story featured a giant color photo of a wi-fi'd cafe, and there was another photo on the jump.

The reporter did a nice job with it as a sort of "Intro to Wi-Fi" piece, and I note that as per usual, the tone is overwhelmingly positive -- focusing on the coolness and usefulness of free public wireless Internet -- until the last word, which is almost always a negative or cautionary note about security concerns.

The Sunday Portsmouth Herald story, did not run yesterday as scheduled... Apparently it was pushed off until next weekend, so stay tuned for that.
