Last week, at my MBA classes we had a debate topic “Should we adopt modern technology into business”. Just in time xkcd appeared with new comic that can suit to any technology. “White Hat” here giving insight sounding like profound although there is no actual insight, which causes cueball to rethink about the technology and adoption of it into our lives. The sentence is brilliantly constructed in a way that cueball will fill in the missing insights and trigger the reservations about technology. Its useful for any technology debate topic that you participate. What ever the technology may be.
Recently I consulted for a wireless case at a popular hospital at Chennai. Had a long discussion with customer about their existing network and budding requirement for wireless. We spoke about how good for a hospital to use wireless. We spoke about how patients who suffered to be in hospital premises drastically will feel better to have some outside connection via Internet. But limited, accounted and secure internet connection should be provided under his doctor’s permission. Guest access and Captive portal are the way to provide these functionality to their gonna-implement wireless infrastructure. Below are summarized points that I have documented from our discussion.
