Heading to Toronto for DemoCamp 12

I jumped on the train a few minutes ago at Fallowfield Station in Ottawa.  Heading to Toronto for DemoCamp 12, where organizer David Crow has agreed to give me a short spot for an iotum Talk-Now demo.  Thank you David!

The really cool part? Right now I am sitting on the train, logged into Via’s WiFi network.  It’s a little slow, but it’s definitely good enough for blogging.  Going to try the VPN next.

    It’s ultra slow when I used it (last week). They use satellite and it gets routed to Parsons in the US. I tried using VoIP, but the latency made it unusable. I guess that’s what you get with satellite internet.

    The underlying technology is from a local company Pointshot Wireless:

    Is it still? It always was, but I had the impression that Via had switched. In any case, aside from a lack of VPN access, it’s pretty good.

    Hmm…are you sure it’s from Pointshot? According to this page http://www.pointshotwireless.com/customers/deployments.php?pg=train, it’s only for Montreal to Toronto.
