  Matt Jones On The “Warchalking” Phenomenon  
Posted 2003-03-14 by Tony Walsh
Toronto's pricey Digifest is underway, drawing affluent digerati downtown like so many hackers to a honeypot.

On Friday, March 28, 6:00 pm at the Design Exchange (234 Bay Street, Toronto,) Matt Jones will be speaking about "warchalking."

What is warchalking?
"Dozens of companies in urban centres all around the world are leaving their networks unprotected, enabling anyone with a wireless card in their laptop or PDA to connect to these networks. Warchalking is the practice of marking a series of symbols on sidewalks and walls to indicate these wireless networks. Aware of these symbols and their locations, computer users translate the symbols and are able to connect wirelessly and 'freely' to someone else's internet access."

Tickets to hear warchalking inventor Jones elaborate on and moralize this issue are $35, and can be purchased online or by phone: 416-216-2150
