Transforming Event

Boingo Wireless launches tomorrow. I wrote about it in a brief for the New York Times and in a long article for my own 802.11b Networking News. This launch will most likely transform Wi-Fi public space access from a niche market to a national infrastructure and hasten the integration with cellular networks. Boingo is moderately sized at its launch, but started by a guy who also built from spit and whiskers Earthlink, one of the largest national ISPs.
