running a wireless node...

... at my office. I was pleased to discover that a few other people have connected. OTOH, I am not using encryption and this does mean that someone could read my internet traffic.

I'm trying to think how bothered I am about this. Anything like a credit card transaction will be encrypted via https, so I guess it comes down to whether I care about the small chance that someone might e.g. read my email. But then, that could happen already - using a wireless link just makes it a bit easier.

I don't really think I care that much. I'll just be careful.

Plus, maybe I can read other people's email ;-)
