Open WiFi Networks and personal morality

by justin on January 21, 2008 · 1 comment

I have often defended my choice to run an open wireless network at my house (i.e. not put a password to prevent others from using it) so it’s refreshing to see someone else talk about his personal, moral choice to do the same….

ps: thus post is not to minimize the need or security in many circumstances. Many businesses need to be safe, secure and make the most of their bandwidth. Here at MacCognoscenti we take that need very seriously and have no problem setting up the toughest and most modern wifi security available. Personally, though I think it is nice and good karma to allow others to sign on without restrictions!

I like your choice to have a public hotspot, but I would explain to people how it’s possible to set-up a secure private network for files, internet, etc., then designate a portion beyond the firewall to share. Your comment makes it sound like you have to make a choice between security or morality.
