Do they Count?
A quick follow up to my post yesterday about libraries and Sundays.
I did a seat count again at 3 pm and got very similar numbers to what I reported in my original post even with the sunny weather ( which actually sort of surprised me). But here is what I am left wondering:
Can I count the 9 people who were sitting outside the library on the public plaza using their laptops from our wireless connection?
We usually have anywhere from 10-30 people inside our library taking advantage of our wireless network. Late last fall the Borough of Princeton installed park benches and lovely tables on a newly built plaza that is right next to our library. Our signal reaches just far enough for those sitting in the plaza to log on. I guess with the sunny weather, our laptop users preferred to do their surfing in the sunshine.
So, can I count them?
