Yuri Gitman created what he calls the Magicbike, a bicycle equipped with a laptop, power supply and antenna to bring more easily accessible free wireless hotspots to the masses. Gitman's bike has allowed people in NYC to browse the internet freely in local parks and gardens. "'I am like the ice cream man, but with no music and I deliver free wireless access and not ice cream'."
