It was just a matter of time...even TIME is publishing articles on War Driving. After San Francisco, NYC is the next great place for picking up free WiFi signals...and here are some resources if you'd like to give it a whirl:
My friend Glenn has a great discussion/resource page on WiFi (or Airport or 802.11b or "that cool wireless internet thing" at 80211b.weblogger.com Check out his sidebar links for a full rundown on what the industry is up to.
The guys at NYCwireless rock my world. This is the best way to locate free wireless points in the city.
If you are a Mac head, Apple's AirPort pages explain how you can effortlessly get in on the fun. PC folks are welcome to--Glenn has some links above that will help you suss out what you need.
And my favorite geek touch--Ultimate Apple AirPort. When I get a chance I am going to hack the hell out of my base stations, get a Pringles can and see just how far I can make my signal go.
Some people love cars...that always seemed silly to me, and I often made fun of folks who did that when I was young. But I'll invest a week of work to double the range of a wireless internet connection. Hmmm.
