Wifi sharing request

Wifi request An interesting encounter last week in Lyon: a message stuck on a door from a person who want to share a wifi connection. The translation in English goes like:

"Hello, I would like to share a Wi-Fi connection with someone. I need the internet for my studies (till June) but I do not want a subscription for 3 months. Anyone interested? You can leave me a note in my mailbox or come see me on the 4th floor. Thanks."

Why do I blog this? An interesting example of how a technology (and also the business model of such technology) foster foster social interaction and forms of communication about it.

In addition, it's also curious to see what sorts of infrastructure are shared (or willing to be shared). While it seems socially acceptable to share wifi (or to ask for it), what would be the situation if someone asked for water, gas or electricity?
