battlemesh report-back

Ryan, Paige and Jenny did a bunch of interviews with representatives of as many community networks as they could find. Their goal was to get the origin story of each of the networks, Challenges that they faced and advice for people who were just starting a network.

Musti has helped create a hackerspace in Maribor called KreatorLab and is focusing on creating a set of standards for documenting open hardware.

There's a guy called Dave Taht in Los Gatos who works with the IETF who works on standards for the internet. He developed a bunch of the bufferbloat stuff in cerowrt. Jenny recommends his presentations.
