WIFI and Democracy

Check out this article on high tech anarchy protests during the RNC Convention in NYC. While I don’t condone the illegal uses (e.g., breaking in on protected licensed frequencies), I do applaud the many creative uses of wireless networking — made possible by the FCC unlicensed rules.

And I’m off on vacation, culminating in the community wireless summit. No doubt I’ll have loads to wax eloquent about when I return.

Stay tuned . . .

  1. My only comment is that this stuff intrigues the hell out of me and I don’t understand it nearly as well as I want to. Therefore if I can make it out to Illinois for this conference I will do so. If not, I’ll hope to catch up with y’all at worldcon and get myself more properly informed then.
