What don't MIT know?

It's a bit confusing for one whose experience of university wireless networks has routinely been one of facing all manner of challenges and delays getting internet access on campus. Sometimes a metre of cat 5 cable and the trusty apple express base station would get around the system, but less so these days. Registering on a network has usually involved all kind of rigmarole to get a user name and password, because of the need to ensure SECURITY. Sometimes this takes days. Sometimes reason dictates simply giving up. So it's a bit perplexing coming to MIT and being logged on as a visitor in about 90 seconds flat. Makes me wonder what their SECURITY and SURVEILLANCE people don't know.

Or something. ^_^
