If there ever was an ideal location to have an open access wifi it is a hospital. This is one of the pleasant surprises that I’ve had with MacKay Memorial Hospital in Hsinchu this time around. Doctors like many professionals have a language all their own so having immediate and reliable access to information when you are trying to make health decisions is invaluable. Usually I do this whenever any kind of medication is prescribed as I want to understand what the medicine is and want to forgo any mistakes due to miscommunication. Of course a really fun part of having wireless internet here is that with my Powerbook and iSight camera we can have live video broadcasts/chats direct from our room. This allows our extended family around the world to share just a bit more of the experience. Kudos to MacKay Memorial.
