Mega-cool, yes -- but I can't tell how they're different from
Boingo. Can you elucidate?

So Joltage is premiering at PC Forum, and I'm excited enough that I'm
posting this while they're still on stage. This is a major leap forward
towards the munchkin future.
In 60 seconds, you can download and install their software to turn your
802.11 equipped PC into a micro ISP -- and they federate the resulting
service, and pay you back if people connect through you.
Look, I can't tell you this will work or otherwise, but this is the most
exciting step forward I've seen in some time. This is waay cooler than
even boingo &c -- the business model is the innovation.
