One small step for obesity, one giant step for a truly networked world: I'm typing this from the Oxford, Ohio, McDonald's, which recently installed free WiFi. Oxford is a small town, albeit a college town (home to Miami Univ. of Ohio and 16,000 students and maybe 8,000 year-round residents), so it's not exactly typical of Smallville, USA.
Yet if the digital revolution has made it this far, it's certainly coming to the middle of nowhere soon–if it's not already there. And, at the same time, changing "nowhere" to somewhere or everywhere.
