Point-to-point Wi-Fi brings internet to all

Point-to-point Wi-Fi brings internet to all

thanks to Seb Schmoller and his hugely influential fortnightly mailing list for this . Link in my sidebar go on subscribe !!!

I have been interested in this area for a while and was heartened to see the reference to mesh technology see my earlier blog post http://andysblackhole.blogspot.com/2007/05/mesh-technology-to-geeky-for-some-but.html

this article is refreshing because it talks of communities taking control and wifi mesh technology coming of age.

I disagree it will happen at least in europe and the North American in a lot less than 10 years.
