Scott Beale of Laughing Squid loves his Kyocera KR1 EV-DO router, which uses a high speed wireless EV-DO connection for sharable Internet WiFi.
Now my portable broadband network is ready to go. I just show up with it, plug it in and in a minute or so the wireless network is live. That’s all there is to it. All I need is power and Verizon EV-DO coverage. Have an old laptop without a wi-fi card? No problem, just plug it into one of the 4 ethernet ports.
I’m going to bring the EV-DO router up to Gnomedex this week and see if I can get it to work at the conference and maybe do some testing with distance and number of users.
I have to say the Kyocera EVDO Router is one of the best things ever. In
our company, we were paying almost $500 a month in one of our stores in NYC
that couldn't get anything beyond a 144k down ADSL. Even at 1XRTT speed, we
get 160 down in that location, and in another location in Ohio, we get
almost 400k down, which is cool because we couldn't get anything at all
there. Laptops weren't an option but this allowed us to hook the EVDO card
up, leave it out where it could get a good signal, and even let the managers
of those locations use their laptops with the included WiFi.
Awesome device and HIGHLY recommended.

I'm using it at Gnomdex right now and it works great. In fact I'm posting photos live from the event using my personal EV-DO network (including photos of guest speaker Senator John Edwards)
I asked Amy Parness, the co-founder of Sparkle Labs, maker of fantastic educational electronics kits, to write a Medium post about gender and the business of being a maker business person. Her terrific essay calls out the problems with “pink girly engineering kits.” From Medium:
Zero UI is the new term for “invisible interfaces”—what happens in the future when all the clicking and tapping and typing is history: “If you look at the history of computing, starting with the jacquard loom in 1801, humans have always had to interact with machines in a really abstract, complex way.” [Fast Company]
