Four Friends Closes
Popular downtown coffee shop Four Friends was forced to close last week. It will be sadly missed by many. For a personal insight into the history and closure of Four Friends, I'd highly recommend reading Karl Swedberg's blog entry "The End of Four Friends". Karl was one of the founders of Four Friends.
Man (in Alaska) arrested for using library wifi
There's a story making the rounds about a man in Alaska who was arrested, apparently for sitting in a car outside a library using their wifi after hours. You can find the story in the Alaska Journal and commentary at librarian.net and engadget.com. The story raises questions about appropriate use of public wifi, how that is/should be policed, and the place of libraries in providing public wifi. Got any thoughts? Please do share!
