I am sitting at a cafe in Newtown, writing this blog on the fly. Elated before I’ve even taken my first sip of caffeine, because I’ve just discovered they have free wifi courtesy of Unwired.
Big deal, you say sitting smugly in your UK or US local funky art house coffee shop, bar, gas station or free-standing Chinese take-out booth. For you wifi is like air -free, everywhere and taken for granted.
Not so in Sydney.
This is a true moment for celebration. The place is Gloria Jeans on King Street. And while they may be a chain, while they may top up their long blacks with hot water, and while they may have Beyonce’s greatest hits on 10 minute rotation, they have just found a new loyal customer.
