Mathieu Lehanneur’s WiFi stations

Mathieu Lehanneur WiFi StationI’m looking for a new place to work.  My old beloved cafe recently closed and the new tenants are rather adamantly anti-WIFI.  It is a sentiment I find slightly outrageous if you want to make it in the neighborhood cafe category — it is enough to make me wish for the failure of this local business (did I say that? yes I did, I am already annoyed with them).   Am I being a pain in the butt who just misses her old hang out, or do we have a right to WiFi?

Keeping with my French inspiration for the day….what do you think of these WiFi stations by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur and sponsored by outdoor advertising company JCDecaux?  I don’t think I can get a delicous breakfast burrito and a coffee there, but I do like the idea of sitting in a bustling outdoor garden in Paris to get my work done.

  1. Rochelle-
    Even here in my newly NORMAL-ized state, the right to universal WiFi comes somewhere below the rights to universal broadband and health care. However, you, being of the entrepeneurial bent, could conceivably whip together a seed pavilion, vegi stand and coffee shop with WiFi based in a food truck. I can just see going to the SBA for a loan with that as a business brief.
    I wonder how long it will take for an enterprising individual to put together an espresso & Croque Monsieur (madame would require too much equipment) cart that could outrun le gendarmes. IMHO, Paris suffers from a shortage of food carts. No doubt the Surly Cafe Waiters Union has something to do with that.
    Apologies, I may have had just one too many wee cups of coffee today.

Garden Destination: Bonsai West

I never feel like I have many great little gems tucked away in my neck of the woods. But I think I might suffer from a ‘grass is greener’ sort of mentality, because when I sit down to really think about it….there are some very interesting places around here and Bonsai West is one of…

Cottage for Sale

This caught my eye this morning….I find it funny how this type of advertising makes me infinitely more interested in the house than a typical real estate flyer.   Does it do the same for you? Cottage for sale at Baileys.  You May Also Like
