literally probably the slowest board on the site

still love you guys

we should start some open source projects, I'm down if you're down

I've been thinking of designing a mesh network guerilla internet that is independent of ISPs and their bullshit

how do we organize this?

i'm serious about this too

hyperlocal chat/data/sharing/social services, with message and data sharing via sneakernet (sd cards, ssds) or wireless to other neighborhoods. need weatherproof solar powered wifi boxes mounted on existing power and light poles.

develop a very thorough protocol standard, and then let people build their own hardware and software stacks that implement the standard.

you will never reimplement the existing physical internet infrastructure via ad hoc wireless. aim to provide an experience that is usable -- like the consumer internet as it was in, say, the year 2000.

OT: i once had an internet friend from surrey. are you them?

for a mesh network you need a lot of users or large coverage. HAM packet radio has large coverage, but only slow connection. some fancy shooting up satellites, also large coverage and slow, taking years for research of course.
for home router usage there is b.a.t.m.a.n., a protocol for wireless meshing in actual use.
p2p and freenode have (had?) the same aspiration as OP, don't think they took of.
i find academic projects for the solely educational purposes that are not actually usable hardly motivating and ideas already cheaply implemented a waste of time.

any other ideas?

I'm thinking of starting an open-source/hardware audio-mixer, DJ controller type device that could be used to control DJ or music production software.
