While not specific to our region, Hotspotr is a great resource for when you’re looking for someplace to plonk yourself and twiddle on the laptop. Sure, you could be like Tom and just live at one of the Murky Coffee locations, but some of us are a little more mobile. The best thing about it is that it graphically differentiates between places that are free and that charge for the connection – see the little dollar signs?
The second best bit about it is that it doesn’t wink and ignore one of the essential problems of online finder things – how the hell do you use it if you need it to find your online access? m.hotspotr.com from your mobile phone, in this case. Punch in your zipcode and get a nice listing, sorted by physical distance from you.
