"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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
