I Will Best You, Mr. Dunker!

November 16, 2010

Android, Technology, Wireless

It’s been an interesting few weeks for me.  As I noted a few posts ago, I’ve been using my Droid (and Wigle.net‘s Android tools) to do a little war-biking.  As of this evening, I’ve found over 5,000 new access points around my travelling routes (see the map above).  And it has been a heck of  lot of fun.

I’ve done more pedaling in the last month than I’ve done in the previous year.  And with the various pieces of tech I’m playing with, I can really see where I’ve been.  Anyone watching my blog can tell when I’ve ridden a new route.  And I can tell the difference in my attitude and my energy levels.  Of course, I’ve also found that I’m having more 2PM bouts of drowsiness.  Too bad I can’t exploit caffeine any longer.

I’ll provide a final tally for the month in a few days.  But between now and then, please know that I am having fun mapping WiFi access points in Johnson County, Kansas.  I won’t catch up with Google’s “StreetView” numbers, but I am within striking distance of Noah.  Of course, when he did most of his war-driving, he was in a car delivering pizza – and every AP he ran across was new.  In my case, I am only picking up the new radios that have not been previously loaded into Wigle.net’s database.  But I am determined to best you, Mr. Dunker!
