A new Mac ISP, a wireless network in Boston, and more will be topics on tonight's Your Mac Life, the Internet show about all things Mac.

Other World Computing (OWC) has started a new Mac-Only Internet Service Provider (ISP): FasterMac.Net. The service builds on experience gained with OWC.NET, the company's Chicago-area Internet service provider. Larry O'Connor, CEO of OWC, will discuss why the company has taken this step and how Mac users will benefit.

Tech Superpowers in Boston has started its own wireless network along Newbury Street, Boston's "Rodeo Drive." Micheal Oh, the company's CEO, will tell exactly what the network is and why it was implemented.

Your Mac Life's "resident geek," John Welch, will serve up another edition of "GeekSpeak." He'll answer listener questions about how the Your Mac Life Web site is set up using Moveable Type. Welch will also explain what "ports" are and why you should care.

As always, MacCentral's Peter Cohen will be on hand with the latest Mac gaming news. Have any questions for tonight's guests? E-mail them to Your Mac Life's host-producer Shawn King.

You can catch Your Mac Life every Wednesday from 5:30-8 p.m. (Pacific). You can also join one of the two Chat Rooms that run during the live show -- on the World Without Borders site or on the dedicated IRC Server at irc.netmug.org in the #yourmaclife Channel.

If you have a high speed Internet connection, you can access the live video stream during the Your Mac Life broadcast by opening QuickTime 6 and typing in this URL: rtsp://qt.yourmaclife.com/yml/testing
