Looking for a connection

I was a few minutes early for my meeting this morning near the Embarcadero.
So I pulled out my iPhone and looked around for an open wifi access point.
A whole bunch of access points showed up. And some looked open.
But they weren't. They were all locked. Quite sad.
We need software that makes it super easy to make your WiFi access point available when the owner isn't using it. Available by hours in the day. Or available with bandwidth limits. Or just available.
Same inspiration as the SETI@home project. Donate your resources. But for WiFi.
I'm going to give FON a try.
