A Small Bridge Across the Digital Divide?

Ewan McIntosh posts today about Fon, a Spanish company that enables individuals to contribute some of their wireless internet in exchange for access to Wi Fi elsewhere.

Ewan poses the question of whether this might be a tool for providing Wi Fi to more schools, as more affluent individuals could make their broadband available.

I do wish that schools didn’t have to go begging of their neighbors, but there may be potential here.
