After the initial frustration with the lists of Open WiFi hotspots I decided to compile my own list.
originally I planned to merge all the various lists then start confirming them one by one, el mohem طلعت الشتيمة بتجيب نتيجة I recieved an email from some wayout employee telling me that they do update their list and that all discrepancies are due to an enthusiastic employee listing hospots that are still under construction (we all know how difficult it is to plug a dlink router) or due to spelling mistakes.
their new updated list now indicates which spots are still in planning (I asked in 3 places that are on the plan, the people there where not aware, well maybe there is value in surprise wifi).
so after eleminating obvious mistakes the spots that are not on the official wayout list are down to a handful
but not all hotspots are run by wayout, and some (man2osha in mohandesin) cut the service without informing wayout, so in the end we still need a decent directory and prefereably it should only list spots that we know work.
P.S. WayOut plan to one day move to another model where you buy prepaid cards or something like that, so we'd better start looking for these non WayOut spots.
