What started as an orphaned idea on the Felucca Festival post, inspired Bill Zimmerman to take ownership of creating a Mesh network for the island. Together with a combination of international and local participants (James Lewis, Mostafa Rashid Ali, Mostafa Mahmoud, Kristian and ….), they hooked up nubialin with internet using a cantena to connect to Darsh’s wifi network which had formerly had difficulty reaching parts of the island due to trees in the way.
Bill’s written a full write up of his experiences and outcomes here. This was a great legacy to leave the island with both in terms of knowledge and infrastructure.
This activity was a part of Felucca Festival 2: A Marriage of Makers
