Performing Wireless: Making a Human Mesh

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Mesh networks can empower communities to build open networks across diverse geographies and resist the capitalist-consumer model of private Internet service provision. We will explore this potential through a performance workshop in which everyone co-designs a network and problem solves around its implementation. Participants will play the roles of geographical, technological, and human actors involved in establishing and maintaining a community wireless network.
