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

Boingo Software is Not an Evil Genie


One of the many advantages of being Boingo’s community manager is that I get to hear a lot of customer feedback — the good, the bad, and yes, every once in awhile, the ugly. Feedback, no matter what the flavor, is important because it allows us to improve. In some cases, customer dialogue also makes us aware of misconceptions that we need to debunk. One of the big ones?  Boingo laptop software is evil and designed to suck up your money. Is this true? Nope. Let the debunking begin. Once upon a time, Boingo customers told us they needed a tool that would notify them when they were in a Boingo hotspot. We thought this was a good suggestion given the majority of our hotspots are roaming locations and therefore it’s hard to know when and where you could use the service.  So we designed a piece of software that automatically pops up on your laptop to alert you when you’re in a Boingo hotspot.

We received positive feedback, especially from Boingo Unlimited customers who expressed that the software’s notification feature
