Our last Tuesday of the month general meeting is tomorrow, Tuesday October
27th at the Omni!
We've been busy alpha testing the network and have been getting some
promising results! More info on that process can be found here:
We're especially interested in finding a handful of new folks who would
want to host nodes. If you're willing to share some of your home bandwidth,
generally reliable, and interested in our project, it's a great way to
learn about the network while helping us out a lot with very little initial
investment! If you're able to email me in advance of the meeting letting me
know that you're interested in hosting a home node, that would be
especially helpful, but if not that's ok too.
We take notes of our meetings (which everyone is encouraged to check out
even if you're not in attendance) here:
Feel free to add agenda items if there are things you want to bring
We're also generally on IRC on freenode servers in channel #peoplesopen.net

Hope to see you there!
I'm thinking that I'd like to do some updates/maintenance to the (dev alpha
test) exit server tonight. Does anyone have any objections/time concerns?
I was thinking probably midnight tonight (Thurs 10/15). I know it's a
little late notice, but I think it may help with some of the issues we've
been experiencing. If everything goes correctly, it should be about 15 min
of downtime around midnight.
Hey just curious who out there thinks there gonna be at the hacknight
If anyone doesn't already have a mesh node, I can provide one tonight, but
it'd help to know if anyone is gonna show.
Would someone be interested in talking to this person? I'll get you in

I just wanted to follow up on a few things with you. I either didn't ask,
or didn't write it down, but can you tell me how much area geographically
is being covered with the mesh during the developers rollout?
I also wanted to clarify that phase two you hope to have 100 nodes in
testing? How much area do you think that will cover?
I did a bunch of research on the proposed FCC rule and I'm angling my
article towards that. There is an open comment period ending Oct. 9, which
was extended by a month. It's not very common for that happen. I have some
quotes from you on that, but I'd really like to get another voice in the
article from someone on the mesh project to speak about it.
I'm interested in knowing how you all think it will impact the project (and
future projects) and workarounds you are considering. I'm hoping to get the
article out quickly so it can run with some time before the comment period
I can be reached by email or by phone. If you can think of anyone on the
mesh project who would be interested in talking to me for the article, feel
free to pass my contact info along.
Thanks again for your time.
