I dropped by Tod Maffin's favourite alleyway on Tuesday morning, and he grabbed a few soundbites from me about the FreeTheNet.ca community wireless project.

The audio is online now, and the clip will air tomorrow (Thursday, October 11th, 2007). The CBC's Spark blog has a short mention, too.

Overall I'm pretty happy with how the piece turned out. I didn't quite expect the whole thing to be about FreeTheNet -- Tod had originally mumbled something about additional wireless stuff, but turns out it's all about free wireless. The stress on "free" was a little strong...the interesting part really is when we can find a great ISP partner who sees the logic in promoting wider coverage, more customers, and the opportunity for additional applications by such coverage.

Thanks for the opportunity, Tod!
