I like art and I likes my internet. Now I can get both over at the Tacoma Art Museum! From their press release:
Tacoma Art Museum now provides free Internet (WiFi) access, allowing museum visitors to access the Internet from the museum’s public spaces such as: Untitled Café, the Murray Family Event Space, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Art Resource Center, and the outdoor balcony. By becoming a WiFi Hotspot, Tacoma Art Museum has created a new means of integrating art and technology for community use.
"In order to achieve our mission of connecting people through art, it is crucial that we continue to advance in line with the ways people communicate and gather information today and into the future," said Tacoma Art Museum Director Stephanie Stebich. "We hope that this new service will make the museum even more accessible to people and will serve as just one more reason to spend time here with us."
Anyone with a wireless-enabled laptop or other device can access the free high-speed broadband Internet provided by the museum. When connecting to the network, users should look for "TAMWIFI." There is no password or any further set-up required once "TAMWIFI" has been located and accessed.
Guess that's one more spot you can add to the ol' map, Mark. Well done, TAM. My question: can it be access outdoors on the nearby steps or even over in the Plaza?
