In Search Of Meeting Venues!

We're down to just two consistent venues per month, with the loss of our spot at Industry Lab. If you know of a venue willing to accomodate monthly meetings for our grassroots movement with very little operating budget, please get in contact with lurker@riseup.net.
Our network is owned by its users.

Wireless community-owned networks (WCNs) are a grass-roots alternative to Internet service providers that protects your privacy and respects net-neutrality.


Unlike private or municipal networks, ownership of our network is distributed.


Since each router we install together is necessary for the transmission of data, distributed ownership can be guaranteed with simple legal documentation. Our networks allow communities to move beyond exclusionary producer/consumer relationships demanded by existing ISPs towards a neighborly experience within their WCN.
