Super Tuesday Poll – Ethernet Adapters

It’s been awhile since I have done a “Super Tuesday” poll, so I thought I would throw one in today.  You should answer this question for your primary computer, whether that be a desktop, a laptop, a tablet PC, or whatever.

I can’t give any “I voted” stickers away, but take satisfaction in the fact that you are shaping the (wireless) direction of America…. 🙂

Calling All Bloggers

WiFiJedi: This is an email that I received late last week asking for bloggers to fill out a survey for a “State of the Blogosphere” report by Technorati.  It took me 10-15 minutes to fill out, and was actually pretty fun/interesting.  If you are a fellow blogger, I personally would appreciate you taking a few minutes of your time to help out the community by answering the survey questions.  FYI — I have nothing vested in Technorati or the report, but want to get the best possible data to the public.

2010 State of the Blogosphere Survey – please give us 15 minutes.

Since 2004, Technorati has been tracking the Blogosphere through our State of the Blogosphere study. The goal of the study is to create a complete snapshot of the activities and interactions that make up the Blogosphere by asking you, the bloggers, to share some information about your habits. The survey includes questions like how, when and why you blog. Is this a side business, full time job or something you do for fun?

Please feel free to send this link to other bloggers you know. And be sure to check back on Technorati.com in November for a summary of the results.

WiFiJedi: As a personal side note, those who know me well understand I am  a *huge* NHL Hockey fan.  After completing the survey, I did see this “Five Things To Look Forward to This NHL Season” post on Technorati.  #incaseyouareinterested

Super Tuesday Poll – 802.1X authentication

This was a question that I asked the audience during my presentation at today’s Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) meeting in Phoenix:

Will lack of unlimited cellular data plan increase your Wi-Fi use?

If you haven’t heard, AT&T announced that it is canceling the unlimited data plan for the iPhone as of June 7th, 2010.  Luckily, it seems that (for the time being), existing users will be grandfathered into the old plan if they’d like.

About 6 weeks ago, I wrote about the trend toward metered data plans on my Computerworld Blog based on a discussion with Gartner Analyst Michael King at the Gartner Wireless Summit.

Mr. King postulated (and I agree) that metered cellular data plans will put another source of pressure on enterprises to deploy their own wireless LAN (WLAN )as a way to mitigate the cost associated with their employees with using the cellular network.

It’s one thing if employees can use the cellular network for unlimited data.  At that point, it’s mostly about end user preference.  However, it’s another thing if organizations have to pay for every MB of transferred data- at that point, they will encourage users to switch over the the WLAN, especially for high bandwidth applications such as video.

What do YOU think?  Is this going to affect YOUR use of the cellular network?  Let me know in the poll question below if this will increase your Wi-Fi use.

OBTW, I certainly think this is only the beginning for cellular companies to enforce metered data services.  There was a time when we paid for the amount of minutes with unlimited data as an add-on.  I think over the coming months/years, this will be exactly the opposite — we will have to pay for the amount of data we use with unlimited minutes being an “optional” add-on.
