THE SENSORS IN MY POCKET tell me I am spending a weekend where the strongest network connectivity is between people and not between devices. That is because in Cong, there are few places for me to see 3G over the air.
It's hard not doing this kind of electronic analysis because I glance at my phone's screen a lot. I think now that I already know that high speed data services will happen only where there is strong WiFi, I will let things unfold gracefully in the real network space--jointly considering interesting ideas mooted by thinkers who have congregated in Cong, County Mayo, this weekend.
If you're interested in the sound of the flow of things, I recommend searching http://audioboo.fm for #cong13 where some engaging audio clips will be shared.
