[edit] Wireless mesh networks

Wireless mesh networks are growing in popularity, thanks in part to improved hardware and open-source solutions that are now available. In the US, broadband stimulus funding has recently given a boost to municipal and community wireless networks, including mesh networks.

[edit] Mesh meetups at Noisebridge

We're holding a series of workshops at Noisebridge to learn more about mesh networking, and to work on some projects like installing open-source mesh firmware onto proprietary wireless routers. The next meetup is scheduled for:

Date: Mark will be traveling so no meetups are scheduled right now, but please feel free to schedule another mesh meetup yourself by editing the calendar.

Location: Noisebridge, 2169 Mission St, San Francisco, CA
