Shirky on nutty pay-as-you-go Wi-Fi economics. Clay Shirky sez:

More proof, as if any were needed, that the economics of Wifi are interfering with plans to offer metered commercial access. I have a T-Mobile Wifi account, 300 mins for $50, so that when I'm away from free APs, I can at least drop into a Starbucks, order up a doppio, and check my mail. Discuss [Boing Boing Blog]

Clay goes on to say that the 300min/$50 deal is dead, just when I might need it next week. If the resort where our timeshare condo is doesn't have WiFi (Boingo says they do, management says they don't), I'll have to mosey into South Lake Tahoe for access, either at Starbucks or at Mulligan's Irish Pub. We'll see, won't we.
