Jon Udell describes his experiences looking for wireless access in his relatives’ hometown, and being questioned by the police for sitting in a running car outside a local school.

Is it conceivable that a small town might designate a well-known AP for public access, including drive-through use? The public library would be the obvious candidate. (Ideally its public-access AP would be isolated from the library’s internal network.) During regular hours, visitors could bring laptops inside, but after hours they could park outside in a well-lit and easily-monitored area. Then there’d be no incentive to cruise schools and residential neighborhoods scanning for APs. [Jon’s Radio]
