Free Ride WiFi!

A call at The Technology Liberation Front to let your neighbours free-ride your WiFi connection. And, is this legal? Remains to be seen, but the WiFi battle for free municipal wireless heats up: incumbent providers put their best efforts in locking down the market and prevent the universal free ride. (Free ride as in tax paid internet services.)
In the meantime 58% of the private WiFi networks in Amsterdam are not secured (or "open"), according to a recent "war-drive" through the city by McAfee. Amsterdammers are generous people indeed.
