Chris Pirillo and a number of others tried out Boeing's new Connexion in-air wireless Internet today. But it's not just in the air: Vancouver's Teekay Shipping, the world's largest independent oil tanker company, will be the first to deploy the same service (PDF file) to its fleet of ships, which will mean broadband Internet nearly anywhere in the world, air or sea.

And I tell you, that's going to make things a whole lot easier for Navarik, the company I work for. When you make web-based software, trying to get it to work on ships today, without a connection to the Web in mid-ocean, is tricky.
