Mathieu Lehanneur’s WiFi stations

Mathieu Lehanneur WiFi StationI’m looking for a new place to work.  My old beloved cafe recently closed and the new tenants are rather adamantly anti-WIFI.  It is a sentiment I find slightly outrageous if you want to make it in the neighborhood cafe category — it is enough to make me wish for the failure of this local business (did I say that? yes I did, I am already annoyed with them).   Am I being a pain in the butt who just misses her old hang out, or do we have a right to WiFi?

Keeping with my French inspiration for the day….what do you think of these WiFi stations by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur and sponsored by outdoor advertising company JCDecaux?  I don’t think I can get a delicous breakfast burrito and a coffee there, but I do like the idea of sitting in a bustling outdoor garden in Paris to get my work done.

  1. Rochelle-
    Even here in my newly NORMAL-ized state, the right to universal WiFi comes somewhere below the rights to universal broadband and health care. However, you, being of the entrepeneurial bent, could conceivably whip together a seed pavilion, vegi stand and coffee shop with WiFi based in a food truck. I can just see going to the SBA for a loan with that as a business brief.
    I wonder how long it will take for an enterprising individual to put together an espresso & Croque Monsieur (madame would require too much equipment) cart that could outrun le gendarmes. IMHO, Paris suffers from a shortage of food carts. No doubt the Surly Cafe Waiters Union has something to do with that.
    Apologies, I may have had just one too many wee cups of coffee today.

A Flowering Tree Wish List

This time of year is such a treat.  It is so full of beautiful flowering trees and shrubs that it is hard to take it all in and really feel like you have enjoyed it before it fades into the green of summer. My own garden boasts a Cercis canadensis (Eastern Red bud) that is…

Landscape Sculpture Auction

Kerry at Landart studio has an auction going on for a beautiful driftwood sculpture.  It is an interesting piece of two intertwined cedar trees that would be very nice in a large garden.  It was found near Vancouver Island and it sounds like it will be displayed during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.  If you are…

I have been a very absent blog writer and I know it.  Working on my newest project (leaf magazine) is just one reason, the other is that I had to put our family cat to sleep yesterday and while I had hoped I would feel better today, I don’t. I don’t want to go on…
