Madison photo on Ars Technica

Ars Technica has an article up now on Satellite Internet: 15Mbps, no matter where you live in the US.

Apparently, they wanted a picture to illustrate "satellite dishes", so they chose this:

I took one look at it and said "Hey, I know where that is!"

But I think those satellite dishes are a bit outside the price range of most consumers.

The photo was copied from the flickr site of someone named "billrdio", who seems to have lots of great photos. Nice work, billrdio.

I've actually been up on that roof. It's pretty cool in person.

It was cool to see both lakes from one view. You get a good sense of being on an Isthmus.
