October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education. That said, every October we participate in two athletic events that I feel are significant in laying the groundwork necessary for them to be successful in the academic world and in their adult lives.  The first of these events is the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) triathlon, aptly called “The Best Day in Triathlon.” Here’s a brief overview from their website:  “In 1994, three friends started a triathlon fundraiser to help one man regain his independence after a tragic accident left him a quadriplegic. From one came many, and Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) took root in the belief that sports and an active lifestyle are a pathway to more in life. Since that fundraiser 25 years ago, CAF has been committed to breaking the financial barrier that individuals with physical challenges face to participate in sports and live a healthy and active lifestyle.”  Participating alongside challenged athletes in a very tough race gives our kids an additional perspective on their own lives. The racers on the course with them face obstacles that they

IDG Features Boingo’s Strategy to Plant Hotspots All Over the Universe

-


Boingo’s leadership in the growing universe of Boingo hotspots is featured in an IDG article by Mikael Ricknäs; the article has been syndicated across the IDG network on various trade publications including PC World, CIO and Network World. Cool! Kudos to Christian Gunning, our director of corporate communications for his contribution to the article.  Here are the highlights: The number of worldwide public Wi-Fi hotspots is expected to quadruple, and total 5.8 million by 2012, as operators look for ways to reduce traffic on their mobile networks, according to a recent study by Informa Telecoms and Media. “One of our strategic initiatives right now is to expand coverage into categories that haven’t been built out, but will be,” said [Christian] Gunning. Few big national restaurant chains in the U.S. have hotspots in their restaurants…restaurants will see a big build out in the next three or four years, he said. Wi-Fi hotspots in sports arenas, concert halls and shopping malls will also become more prevalent. Wi-Fi hotspots are also about to become more integrated with mobile networks thanks to a specification called Hotspot 2.0, which is being developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. It allows users to automatically move between the two network
