Free your Wifi!
I’ve been talking to several people, especially bloggers about the possibility of this “open source” project. I’d ask them if they have wifi at home and if they freely share that with their neighbors. Most of those I asked tells me they have some sort of encryption and password protection and do not freely share their bandwidth.
While I agree that the network security is an important issue, I still believe in the idea of “pay it forward”. If enough people who have their internet on 24/7 at their homes and establishments and network it wirelessly, everyone else will benefit from this “open source” scheme. If this idea grows and more and more people will share their wireless internet free, life could be easier. :D
Yup, again, I know the repercussions of un-secured networks and all that but I think that ultimately the benefits will outweigh the disadvantages.
So, what do you think?
