Untethered Wireless Mesh

This is a straight out C&P from the ‘Free Wireless Auckland‘ blog. I’m happy for comments as to the morality (for want of a better term) of replicating blog postings between different blog sites, but I want to retain this link and figure this is a good place from which to do that.
Thanks to Simon who linked this clip in his friendfeed. It’s part 4 of a 5 part series of the closing keynote of Webdirections South 2007 so, while it’s not new news – it’s a good clip worth the watch.

Will (Community) WiFi Work?

Over on the Free Auckland Wireless Blog, I pose the question that, if this community WiFi project takes off, can we then expect some corporate assistance by some of the ISPs and Telecommunication companies?

Will the community be given the chance to grow, or will it be shut down by service providers leaning on their customers who choose to take part? – Thoughts??
