I'm in a hotet room in London and someone has an open WiFi called riaz. I'd like to thank her. How do I find an address to email her? Is there a convenient way to see who else is using that hub? Can I become a promiscuous listener to traffic on that WiFi hub?

XNMap for OS X, it is an NMap port for OS X and should allow you to scan the network you are connected to for other machines IP Addresses.  It will at the very least allow you to scan the network and identify who else is using the WiFi with you...  hopefully you will be able to get some information that will lead you to your wireless friend!
