I am off to Madison, Wisconsin tomorrow and I am driving there. Once you would have needed a directory to do this. Now you check out Google Maps to work out how to get there without driving through Chicago (I'd love to go there, but I am warned about being stuck in traffic). The question is whether you can get wireless access out on the highway.
I am Professor of Media and Communication in the Creative Industries Faculty at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia.
I am the author of New Media: An Introduction, the third edition of which has just been published by Oxford University Press.
I am also the author of Understanding Global Media, published by Palgrave in 2007.
