Cambridge Public Internet Mesh

If you're local to me (Cambridge, Somerville) and interested in helping provide community Internet, please join the MIT Roofnet/Cambridge Public Internet mesh network.

You can get pre-built nodes here:

http://xa.net/SML_line.html

You don't need to connect the nodes to your cable/DSL line if you don't want to; they are autonomous if they can reach other nodes. The peering agreement is pretty much "you pass my packets and i will pass yours". It's all still in beta and doesn't cover all of Cambridge, but I believe in building an alternate provider of Internet, especially one that is high resistant to a single controlling organization.
