Hello neighbour. Come steal my bandwidth.

Good Morning. As soon as I iron out a few security issues on my machines, I've decided to open up access to my wireless access point at home (it's called Mothership X, just in case you're ever around). No password, no encryption, just free-and-clear internet access for me and my neighbours. I've been thinking about doing this for a while, for some of the reasons that Bruce Schnier outlines in this article. Also, I find it's a nice way to affirm what I've always thought, deep down inside: people are generally good, and when you share, people will share in kind. Karma and all that. Well, in any case, enjoy the free WiFi, Bed-Stuy.
