Urban Wireless Mesh
The Freifunk movement is a big success in e.g. Germany. In Danmark wireless networks are used to connect small villages in the Outback (as in India and Africa). Network protocols like OLSR and BATMAN make it easy for social and hacking groups to set up their own network infrastructure without commercial providers and political control. Gateways and media can be shared. Independent infrastructure has become affordable. Based on openWRT firmware for cheap off-the-shelf-routers and algorithms like OLSR it is possible to establish a non-hierarchical and open network structure above the roofs of oslo and around the hackerspace.
