If you’re in the Minneapolis area, check FOX 9 tonight at . . . get this . . . 9:55pm if you want to see a few sound bites from me about people cyber squatting in coffee houses to take advantage of free WiFi.
I sat down with Jamie Reese from FOX to discuss this topic at an Eden Prairie Dunn Bros near the EP mall.
Unlike me, Jamie is beautiful in person compared to her web photo.
The cameraman who shot the interview recently won an award for the best work in the 5-state region. I hope he got my good side.
UPDATE: Here’s a link to the story. There is a link on that page to the video.

Ed Kohler, author of the blog Technology Evangelist, has blogged about wi-fi squatters.
â€œThey spend the whole day there but only spend three or four dollars worth of stuff for 8 hours of access,â€ he said. â€œThat’s pushing the limit to a degree — and every company has a different policy for how they deal with that, whether they even perceive it as a problem or not.â€
They left out the part when I said, “If I can’t get free WiFi with my coffee, the terrorists have won.”
