John Patrick on Why WiFi Will Be Ubiquitous

John Patrick, a recently retired Vice President at IBM, wrote an article for CNET News.com about the inevitability of ubiquitous WiFi connectivity in the United States. His article, called Wi-Fi and free lunches says, "The advent of Wi-Fi is about to change all of our lives in a major--and positive--way. I'll go further: Wi-Fi is one of those grassroots phenomena that will soon become as ubiquitous as the PC itself."

Patrick apparently got the idea for writing this article when he stopped in a sandwich shop somewhere in New England and found that there was an open WiFi network there, running at 1.2 megabits per second.
