ispot at MIT

Surfing around I saw this today about the ispot project at MIT. My connection seems to be slow so the realtime maps didn't work as well as I would have like but they are still worth checking out. With all of the talk about metro WIFI, mesh networks and location based services, its interesting to see a snapshot of a very well connected area.

From the site: " New wireless communications technologies are changing the way we live and work. This fact is particularly evident at MIT, thanks to the presence of two conditions: 1) the very high percentage of laptop computer ownership on campus; and 2) the existence of one of the most pervasive wireless Internet networks on earth, which includes over 2,800 access points and was completed at the end of October 2005."
