Regency Ballroom Wifi Update

There is no longer a password on the Regency Ballroom Wireless access points.  So many people were trying to access them during the keynote that it created the equivalent of a Denial of Service attack on the routers and made the network performance degrade for those already online.

Tomorrow they will be open and it will be a first come, first serve situation where the first couple hundred people on should be fine. If you can’t get on but MUST be online there is wifi and power in all the session rooms during the keynote where people have been watching the streaming version and blogging from there.
