"Atlanta isn't an especially cultured city overall; if we have something like this, I suspect most other cities will, too."

Even my little town in SW Virginia has live theater (http://www.bartertheatre.com/), Cost is fairly cheap although more that a movie ticket. Variety of shows is pretty good.

A few times a year the theater celebrates it name and allows admission via bartering for your show ticket.

The usage is tied to the visitor's account, not necessarily the home owner. Does lead to interesting questions though. Is a subscriber usage limited (capped) when using other peoples wifi, if not, what happens when the home owner logs into their own router as a visitor?

For me, it's not the need to feel "in contact" 24/7 as much as it is to enable people to call my number where ever my work has happened to assign me for the moment.

Currently I am in the DC area. But likely as not I will be either down south or in the mid-west for the next week or two.

When I need to connect to the net from my computer and I do not have normal access, I simply turn my phone into a hot spot and connect. Should the fiber to the house go out, I can hook my phone up to my router and all devices on the network now have access to the outside world.

Even if I didn't need a cell phone for work purposes, I'd still have one over a land line as it gives me far more flexibility.

If you don't have time to do it right, where are you going to find the time to do it over?

Working...
