Wireless Meshing Working for 60 Days Straight

No pretty photos with this post,but for everybody who's interested in WiFi meshing, Wireless Nomad's Hillcrest WiFi network has been going flat out for 60 days now, providing free WiFi for the neighborhood, and sharing DSL connections amongst neighbors.

The Wireless Nomad plan is to do this over and over again in neighborhoods across the city, and some of the projects in mind are in Kensington market, around the new Liberty Village area (where our office is) and a couple of other neighborhoods.

If you're a WiFi tech geek, and are interested in WiFi meshing in Toronto, you should probably talk to Steve- he's the main tech guy at the co-op, easy to find from the Wireless Nomad web site.

Any new plans now that city-wide Wi-Fi has been announced?

update: it's been 90 days, now...

city-wide WiFi from TO hydro ain't city wide (for some time, at least), nor is it gonna be a FREE ACCESS WiFi net. if they want to sell wifi, good luck to them. WN members are willing to share their signals with everyone and aren't charging their neighbours for doing a bit of web surfing.
