Wireless doc
For some reason, I am on a list of NYC-related blogs. It might perhaps be that I love to spend time there, and I blog when I do? I guess that might be why the wireless doc contacted me to learn about wi-fi in Norway. What can I tell him? First I said that it's very bad, and only the college has anything like that here. Then I remembered. 2200 of a population of 10000 have wi-fi in their most commonly used environment. That's more than 20% coverage. It's also all the students and the faculty at Volda College. But it also means that anybody carrying a wi-fi enable lap-top can settle in the library and surf for free. Neat, isn't it? And very much a suitable service in a social-democratic research library.
