Have you ever had the thought that with all the wifi and portable wireless devices that we all carry round we shouldn't really need network carriers and cables anymore?
Well Whisher have.
They've created a piece of software that allows everyone to share their wifi connection essentially allowing you to get free wifi where ever you are in the world (providing someone is prepared to share too).
According to Whisher the network is powered by users sharing their wifi and all networks registered through Whisher are protected, so no security worries and you get to choose who can access them.
I love this idea and it's just a large step towards the people reclaiming the Internet by democratising access to it.
BTW it works on Macs, PCs and Linux!
