Today's Small Business Trends post confirms that, at least in Cleveland, small business owners are more in touch with the emotions and needs of their customers/clients. In Independent Coffehouses Understand Their Market, Anita comments on a recent tour of coffeehouses in Cleveland that offer free wireless Internet (wi-fi) service. And it's the small, independent coffee houses that are serving up free wi-fi service. The big chains all charge for it. Unfortunately, as is the case with most things, the big guys with the big budget don't have to care.
Sounds like a good time was had by all! An all-day event, with bloggers/wi-fi enthusiasts/coffee-lovers strapping on their notebook PCs and other techo-accoutrement and taking in the Cleveland coffee house circuit. Sounds like my cuppa tea... er... coffee.
