Bringing Wi-Fi to Students in Rural NC by Van

Wired News: Wi-Fi Hits the Road

Being from NC, I was proud to see this story. The general assembly funded the creation of a van that uses a satellite and wi-fi routers to create mobile Internet access. The van shows up at a school, gives out 20 laptop computers and everyone can get online. In rural NC, this is awesome.

"There are students taking classes that would not otherwise take them if it were not for this mobile van," said Dawn Pinkham, an instructor at the college. "The amazing thing about this van is that we can bring it to the population. We can bring it to the people."

I can't help but giggle a little about the redundancy of the "mobile van" comment.
