Trepia enables "instant community" via Wi-Fi

A new company, Trepia, has just rolled out what looks to be a pretty interesting idea — a way for you to find and communicate with people who are in or near the same place as you, by analyzing WiFi network traffic patterns. The result looks like the most interesting new twist on instant messenging to come down the pike in a long time.

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
