Athens, Wis. – As the last hour of daylight fades, Kat Becker parks across the street from the Peterson/Kraemer funeral home.
Becker shuts off the engine of her powder blue Toyota Prius and reaches for her laptop computer. Her two children, Maple and Ted, peer over her shoulder from the back seat.
She connects to the funeral home’s wireless internet, glancing at the obituaries before moving along to other websites.
Back home, at her Cattail Organics farm in Marathon County, it would have taken an estimated 42 hours to upload a short video she’d done for a nearby nonprofit organization.
