The developing field of Wireless Mesh Networking as a means of Internet access offers an exciting and possibly more secure alternative to the traditional ISP model. In order to help keep track of progress, and as a resource for our members, ISOC-NY has added a Wireless Mesh Networking resources page to our wiki at http://isoc-ny.org/mesh - please bookmark it, and feel free to add to it. You can also just simply email contributions to email@example.com. If you are interested in forming an interest group, also get in touch.
