Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Google, what have you ever done for us? Besides search, free email, YouTube, Blogger, GTalk, Chrome, Google Docs, etc. That's nice and all, but they've never given us a holiday present, until now. 

Google will be giving away free WiFi at some of America's busiest airpots starting now and ending on January 15, 2010. 

Travelers at Miami International, Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach will all get the gift of free internet connection (now there's no excuse to miss Riptide while you're away). Google only asks that you think about contributing to a charity. They'll match donations, up to $250,000 per airport. The airport that hosts the most charitable travelers will then be given extra money to give to a local charity. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
