Max B, Juul, Deekoo, Roman, Helen, Steve B (I'm missing one or two)

  • Juul - Image generator/config startup.

Image Generator

It looks like we've decided to flash all of the routers with the same image. Then before their shipped, we would connect them to a LAN where they would be auto-configured with ssh keys, other settings, etc.

Report Back from Open Garden

It was interesting! They're doing low-level bluetooth meshing mostly to facilitate access to the internet. A lot of the folks at the event were more interested in community networks/mesh level applications. Tried to get some of those folks excited about our project.

Random Notes

  • Some folks took picostations home to hack on openwrt with.
  • Helen mentioned that for ~$1mil we coul have 5ish satellites providing mesh connectivity across the world!
