  1. Andrew Rasiej/FON — an organizing event for Project Wifi4NY. Starting next week FON will start to distribute free routers in the East Village as a pilot. The idea is to determine how many routers are needed on a given block, determine what technical issues we have to hurdle, and also see how people respond to the offer. Additionally discover what skills people have and what they are willing to do as volunteers.

    The main goal of Wednesday’s event though is to get feedback from people and gauge their interest in the bigger city wide project.

  2. NYCwireless round-up:
    • New projects including major event and research project
    • political agenda including spectrum policy, net neutrality
