Longing for the days before Wifi was popular

Do you long for the days of yore, when all computers came with a wired Ethernet port and Starbucks was once a coffee shop and not a connectivity destination? Sometimes I do, because life seemed much simpler then. We didn’t have to worry about balancing the radio output on wireless access points, nor worry that a war driver was sitting in the parking lot sucking down bandwidth and trying to penetrate our perimeter. Heck, even the notion of a network perimeter was fairly solid back then.

In an article for HP’s Input Output, I talk about then and now. And I miss those days when we had more wired Ethernet around. It made for some simpler times.
