Feeding my Slog monkey aboard the Walla Walla
  • Feeding my Slog monkey aboard the Walla Walla

I'm headed to Bremerton aboard the Walla Walla, for a panel discussion with some labor folks about the challenges and opportunities they face in this ever evolving age of newish media (first tip on media outreach: don't make us come all the way out to Bremerton), and of course, Internet junkie that I am, I couldn't help but try out the WiFi aboard the Washington State Ferries.

My first impression, it works, and pretty damn well. My second impression $7.95 for 24 hours of access from a single hotspot? Kind of a rip off, Boingo. My third impression, $9.95 a month for regular ferry commuters is a pretty good deal, especially considering how well the WiFi seems to work. My fourth impression, $7.95 for a single-day pass? You better be defining "hotspot" as the entire Washington State Ferry System, because if you try to charge me a second time for my trip back on the Kaleetan, I'm gonna take back all the nice things I just typed about about how well your WiFi works.
