"A man logs on in a bar..." is such a promising premise, can't wait for the day when there will be sites dedicated just for "A man logs on in a bar..." jokes.

An aggressive coding session on Friday afternoon, after a lunchtime in the pub, could sometimes take half of the next week to disentangle!

Janine, in some ways this is already being enabled, although not specifically for engineers. Any number of traditional video game arcade boxes in bars are now networked with bars around the world and players compete not only against their real drinking buddies but their virtual drinking buddies in other states and countries. I saw this first hand at a local bar (I was strictly on a fact-finding mission!!). And then on the Drive for Innovation I spent time with the guys at Incredible Technologies in Illinois, the makers of the famous Golden Tee arcade game, now networked. (If you're interested, here's a dispatch a video: http://www.driveforinnovation.com/incredible-technologies-golden-tee-technology) I think we all need more information-gathering visits to our local pubs to get a much better picture of what's going on... Who's with me??

I agree with you all that most of the people go to pub for company and good time. Its not like starbucks or McDonalds. I do not know what purpose will wi-fi serve in the pubs.

Some of the bars in Austin have free WiFi. I have seen it used, but it is only one or two in the crowd. Most will continue to enjoy the company of others rather than work at the pub.

The limiting factor in most McDonald's is battery life. Most of them have no AC outlets because of the kids, but some of them are starting to add an outlet somewhere. There is a corner booth at the local one that tends to be very popular with the laptop crowd, and there are typically two or three laptops open there. Larry M.
