Have WiFi, Will Travel

Well I dont have one, yet. But since many conference centers don’t have a Wifi connection, like the one i have just come from last week, I could always bring my own along. The Kyocera KR1 Mobile Router might be just the ticket. Laughing Squid has roadtested it and BoingBoing approves but it looks like it will only work for my American conferences.

I have also been toying with the idea of using web-based conference material rather than computer based. With wfi, I could just lead people through a web presentation and they could access it also in real time, and after the conference. Very Web 2.0 . . . My only holdback is the lack of wifi at most conference centers and churches. But all that will soon change with toys like this one. Does anyone have one yet?

  • Catching up on my blogs to read after a typical youth ministry summer. Some thoughts …
    What would a sermon, talk, or message look like if instead of powerpoint slides it was a wiki there for the group to interact with as they listened?
    Hyperlinked notes are cool … but hyperlinked, wikified notes, where other people could add, comment, clairfy, etc would be far more useful. I am thinking something like the notes view in PP now. Where there is a visual slide on the screen and text comments underneath it.
    Instead of expecting the confrence w/e to provide a huge pipe to the greater internet, with ad-hoc stuff why not just create a little intranet to host your wiki during the talk … then you could crystalize it and publish it later.
    The folks @ mugshot (http://blog.mugshot.org) have done some stuff with a live social network created at an event talk, so you can see what links are being passed, comments swarm, all that kinda of stuff during a talk. Granted these were linux developers … but it went great. It let the audiance provide input and information during the presentation.
    Cool stuff.
