- Jenny to finalize Board of Directors, wants to sketch out a road map and a intro flyer
- Luis working on a splash page (for the fake captive portal)
- Jeremy sent out draft of business cards, wants feedback
- Daniel working on the video
- Juul finished up the firmware last week! Finishing auto-printing and writing lots of documentation!!
- Deekoo creating a system for replicatable builds
- Jacob working on outreach - Chris Mitchel - Telecommunications as Commons - fiber networks in the US are generally public utilities and very conservative, unwilling to try new things. However thought our project could work well with a public service utility.
- Noemie is working on our video
- Juul continuing work on the Freestore.cc - Github repo here: https://github.com/juul/freestore.cc
- ChrisJ got his node running last week through the node configurator!
- Matt to focus on wiki
- BART dark fiber as the backbone, bootstrapped by a venture-backed for-profit
- People buying infrastructure themselves
- Network Commons License
- How do we deal with security?
- We route traffic through a VPN using tunneldigger
- Someone suggested running a VPN on Amazon web services
- Could run OpenVPN on the exit node
- Could offer folks to go through Tor once reaching the exit node
- What kind of services/companies should we support?
- Deekoo: Personally hates Amazon, but software should be vendor-neutral. We have to assume any exit node is potentially surveillable anywhere
- Ronald recommends Docker.io. Suggests maybe incorporating in Iceland?
- Marc and Jenny suggest offering options for nearby, faster service or longer-latency,
- Luis uses AirVPN (based in Italy), they keep no logs
- We could also run our own servers, and booby-trap them!
- Several folks mistrustful of Amazon
- Emphasis on our values
- ISP Cooperative
- Reach out to SELC and EFF
