When a computer connects to a wireless network it usually obtains an IP through a DHCP server, which is basically just a method of providing dynamic IPs so that everyone does not have to sit down and figure out what IP everyone else is using and then manually set one on their own machine. When a request is made to a DHCP server two pieces of information are recorded, your MAC address and your hostname.

Once your computer is connected to the network, randomized or not, most of the traffic leaving your PC is in the clear. So any network admin, or *nix user with free software can eavesdrop on everything you do.
