Interested in crypto? Interested in resilient infrastructure and mesh networking? Want to prepare for the zombie apocalypse, and make sure you can still use your bitcoin? Join us for the NYC Crypto Meets Mesh Networking Meetup! We'll have folks from the crypto community as well as GoTenna.
If you can, bring an Android mobile device and a GoTenna device. If not, we'll be pairing off in teams and will try to have some extra GoTenna devices on hand.
Jehan Tremback will speak about Althea, which allows people to bring faster, cheaper internet to their communities. Small antennas on rooftops spread the signal, while their owners earn money. Jehan will cover some of the technical details of the system, and go over learnings from running it in production in the past 6 months, supplying a small town in Oregon with internet access.
