[http://online-degree.hotmail.ru/ Online degree] First off, Very Very nice work on the info flyer. This is something that I
think will get more penetration into the non tech/geek inclined crowd. It
is branded with both t he host biz and the PTP, it is clear, simple and the
text about the PTP is some of the best I have read. The top title grabs
you and the rest flow to inform and educate without blowing out or off
potential users. Are there plans to do this at UG and other biz hosts?
Line 9: Line 15:
[http://online1degree.chat.ru/ Online degree] Second, after our drink and some surfing/socializing we walked over to the
park across from the Coffee Plant. I got connectivity on the south east
corner and a little into the eastern benches. Other areas were not LOS or
had trees/water in the path. All and still, you can sit in that special
section of the park and enjoy the day whilst surfing merrily along. Grab a
cupojoe when you can though to show support of the bizhost.
Line 11: Line 22:
Third, they got their punch cards in:)- Yea I know most folks dont deal
with the "buy 10 get 1 free" thing, neither did I. Until, that is, I got
married. I gota tell you, its a nice thing to occasionally get that bonus
cup of joy juice.

After a few weeks of not going to check out Tom's place the planets finally
came into alignment. Having met up with the usual suspect compatriot we took
off for the posted location. From where I work the trek was damn short and seeing
as the weather was agreeable it was a good excuse to check out that part of town
which I normally do not find myself.
Line 35: Line 42:
Toms place is right on the corner of the block, you cant miss it. From t eh
big windows to the signs posted there in you know from the get go this is
a complex place. Complex not in that "oh shit I'm going to drop a wad here"
but complex in "its gonna take a few trips here to take it all in".

Walking in there is the art. Art is everywhere. On the walls there are
large works, in the air there is music, linning one section of wall is a
row of half cased computers, on the tables are Frys ads. Thelast one is
not something most folks wold appreciate, but for the tribe I
am part of its as much art as seeing Andre Has A Posse or Mona Lisa.
Line 72: Line 53:
From the art comes the goodies. A wall of coffee items, menu choices and
the ever ready proprietor Tom Fitzgerlad awaits your order. Aside from the
obviously posted items be sure to ask Tom what he has got cooking on the
side. Tom has the price point placed just right for his items. My soy chai
was well under the towns norm for price which meant it was that much more
the sweeter in devouring. With food ordered it was off to the tables for
the pointed purpose of my being there and then...wireless access.
Line 73: Line 61:
Best links: '''club month''' The thing that makes Capuia's set up better than most is it is not just
another hot-spot to the Internet. As is becoming very obvious to Portland
denizens setting up a wireless gateway to the Internet is cool and great
and everyone and their half brother can do it. Where the real guts of the
matter comes in is content. Yes Content, which for all the hype over
Connectivity, is still king..or Queen or whatever your gender bias leans
you towards. Connectivity in and of itself is pretty drab if there is no
interesting Content to move across it. With most stright up hot-spots the
content is pretty much what you could get anywhere. I can be at a at one
of a hundred or so documented places in the Portland area to surf the web
so whats the draw for being at Capuia's?
Line 75: Line 73:
Content, fast driving local brewed served with a smile and an iced chai
content. Dig the math and you will dig the deal. If I am at a straight up
hot-spot and I want to grab a web page, Linux distro, chuck of Project
Gutenberg, etc I am going to be running at the speed of that hot-spots
pipe to the Internet. If the stuff I want is local then I'm blazing down at
pretty much the top speed of the wifi AP serving up the local. Say a
hot-spot has a 256k pipe to the Internet, thats what I am sharing with each
and every person using that pipe plus the hot-spots owner who could be
using it for their own use. With 802.11b and the content based off the
net and local I'm running about 5 or 6mbps or about 23.4375 X faster.
Woosh.
Line 76: Line 85:
Another thing about local content, its localized. Yes this may seem
obvious but lets fill the thought out. If I am a wireless user who
frequents Capuia's odds are I will find stuff on its local servers that I
will need, want or otherwise find handy. Say, for instance, the newest
copy of Knoppix, some pictures of the art work surrounding me, the works
found in Project Guttenburg, other Open Source works, some cool PD music I
hear as I sit and sip my chai. Being local means its fast, its accessible
even if the rest of the Internet should fall down and go boom and its here
because someone local thought it was of worth.
Line 77: Line 95:
[http://club-month.boom.ru/ | club month] Tom has plans, plans to fill up hard drives and cd slots full of local
content. The more we talked about it the more I realized Tom was in this
for more than just the biz, more than just running an Internet
Hot-Spot..he was talking about content as if it really mattered. This was
music to my ears. Just like the menu at Capuia's there is more to the
network offerings than what is posted.
Line 79: Line 102:
The other thing to remember when talking to Tom about the plans of what
the place will become we are talking about more than just bits and bytes. We
are talking a sense of purpose, of making the choice to use and offer open
source based apps and services over closed sourced options, of realizing visual
art and information have important places in ones life and making the space called
Capuia's a reflection of that idea and listening to the customers as someone who
has valid ideas that might be cool to implement.

Reviews of PTP Nodes and Hotspots.


["Node518"] Coffee Plant

I hit Coffee Plant today with a compatriot to test out the connectivity.

First off, Very Very nice work on the info flyer. This is something that I think will get more penetration into the non tech/geek inclined crowd. It is branded with both t he host biz and the PTP, it is clear, simple and the text about the PTP is some of the best I have read. The top title grabs you and the rest flow to inform and educate without blowing out or off potential users. Are there plans to do this at UG and other biz hosts?

Second, after our drink and some surfing/socializing we walked over to the park across from the Coffee Plant. I got connectivity on the south east corner and a little into the eastern benches. Other areas were not LOS or had trees/water in the path. All and still, you can sit in that special section of the park and enjoy the day whilst surfing merrily along. Grab a cupojoe when you can though to show support of the bizhost.

Third, they got their punch cards in:)- Yea I know most folks dont deal with the "buy 10 get 1 free" thing, neither did I. Until, that is, I got married. I gota tell you, its a nice thing to occasionally get that bonus cup of joy juice.

Great site, cool host biz, coverage into a nearby park and a fantastic job at the outreach material..Thank you to everyone who put this one together.

["Node491"] Capuia's International Restaurant
