Here I am in Maui, posting to various blogs and websites on the mainland via the broadband and wireless at the in-laws house. Being able to do this still amazes me, ditto for getting off a plane in most any city and having the cell phone work. Hey, I remember when we BBS’ers went to 2400 baud modems and were amazed by the blisteringly fast 270 characters per second transfer rate. (Note: that’s ‘characters’, not ‘kilobytes’ per second!)

One day, maybe quite soon, wireless internet access will be ubiquitous, cheap, and everywhere, with your laptop or PDA always online.
