Who wouldn?t offer free WiFi?

The idea of businesses charging for wireless internet connections is absurd, and I’m actually inclined to posit that the world community of internet service providers should offer WiFi for free — or at least by clicking on a banner ad. Given: I haven’t read the most recent issue of “Wired” and I’m not up to speed on the latest jargon, but it seems that we’re about a second away from the world becoming one big hotspot — and with that in mind, if businesses have WiFi, why not give it away? First off, everyone (even my father) needs to connect to WiFi. If I’m visiting an agency or company and they don’t have free WiFi, I immediately assume they’re about 3 years behind the game. Why not create a new network for free and give guest access? Takes 2 seconds. (In fact, if you want to go by the book, you might enjoy this Inc article on how to offer it for free.) Hotels that charge 10 bucks for daily WiFi access? Calm down. Stop it. Give it away. People who visit the MC office and hang in the living room either wanna jump online or read the Space Shuttle book. Both have their merits. And both are free. As they should be.
