Longing for the days before Wifi was popular

Do you long for the days of yore, when all computers came with a wired Ethernet port and Starbucks was once a coffee shop and not a connectivity destination? Sometimes I do, because life seemed much simpler then. We didn’t have to worry about balancing the radio output on wireless access points, nor worry that a war driver was sitting in the parking lot sucking down bandwidth and trying to penetrate our perimeter. Heck, even the notion of a network perimeter was fairly solid back then.

In an article for HP’s Input Output, I talk about then and now. And I miss those days when we had more wired Ethernet around. It made for some simpler times.

  1. “The company’s model falters, however, when it attempts to treat community news reporting the same way as data reporting. Inevitably, as you distribute reporting work to an increasingly remote team, you break traditional bonds of trust between writers and editors until they are implicitly discouraged from doing high quality work for the sake of increasing production efficiency and making more money.” See these and other remarks from a former Journatic staffer here:
