The Stick Meetings

Another cross company meeting observation today: It's good to see how choice works when the network doesn't. When In a recent meeting the Wi-Fi connectivity for the participants acted up, about half the participants just got our their 3G USB sticks and used the various 3G macro networks to get back online. Probably inexpensive for the local residents, a bit more expensive for the foreign participants. Shame on the Wi-Fi network not working as it should, but then, if the meeting is not underground there is a now a good alternative when you have a local 3G SIM or can afford the roaming charges.
