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.

Before & After: Joanne’s Front Garden

I love houses like this.  Neighborhoods filled with these types of houses tend to be old enough to have a nice mix of people, they have established trees and landscaping and generally moderate prices.  It is this type of place I prefer over newly built neighborhoods.   This house and garden makeover is so interesting to…

A Presidential Garden in Honor of Presidents Day

I know it is a sort of a cliche post, but honestly I have had a bookmark to the NYT article about the Monticello garden for ages and have wanted to give a small shout out in its honor.   So really, forgive me of this presidents day obvious post and just sit back and enjoy…
