Worst Internet Access Ever at an SES Event

Last year's Chicago SES was bad, with no wifi. This year, again no wifi. But to make it worse, the Internet in the rooms are out. So I have to come down to the business center, that has room for 2.5 people to share two computers and an extra ethernet line.

According to the comments over at Andy's Blog, Rebecca Lieb said "The Wi-Fi problem is a union issue, I'm afraid. At least, that's what I'm hearing from our conference staff. More ethernet cables are promised in the press/speaker room tomorrow."

Andy is right, this is a SEM conference, the most dynamic niche in the Internet industry. How can we not have wifi, let alone not have 24/7 Internet access in our rooms. Don't take this as putting blame on Search Engine Watch. But maybe for a suggestion, we move SES Chicago to SES Florida next year. Who needs Chicago's Union laws?

Like to send Danny's blog a ping on this topic.
