For those following Cuba events:

Internet repression continues in Cuba. Young computer tech in Cuba sent to
prison for sharing Internet access through Wi-Fi. The way this was working
was several youth got together and shared the cost of an hour ($5 an hour,
most Cubans make $20 a month) of access at one of the few hotels that allow
Wi-Fi connections. The government is cracking down on these Wi-Fi
gatherings once again, after the one way deals with the US.

Technical details: They were using the software "Connectify Hotspot" for
sharing Internet access through Wi-Fi on their laptops.
