: Howard Rheingold’s “Smart Mobs” at Edge.org.
from BlackBeltJones. Warchalking is a proposed graffiti language for pointing to wireless hubs in the city. It’s an extension of wardialing (the old hacker practice of phoning numbers to see what’s on the other end) and wardriving – driving around to find wireless (802.11b) access points – merged with the old hobo symbols that were used to let others know of dangers or good things in an area.
blogged Howard Rheingold’s talk at Reboot earlier this week. I have been fortunate to have many electronic dealings with Howard over the years, so I’m sure this talk was as terrific in person as it reads. I have to figure out how I can get to more of these events.
are due to Caterina and Stewart, who were married June 1 in Victoria. I’ve only met them briefly, but they immediately struck me as one of the greatest pairings I’ve met. Yay!
