The Personal Telco Project is having its final meeting of 2012, and also celebrating its 12th birthday. Come join in the fun, and help fight for online freedom. Also, volunteer and help keep such an awesome organization that Google values at $16 million, and that delivers (according to a City formula) $2 million worth of services a year, alive and kicking.

Personal Telco Project's "Build OpenWrt" Play Day
World Cup Coffee

The Personal Telco Project uses OpenWrt heavily in devices it uses to build wifi infrastructure around Portland, almost always building the firmware from source, adapted to the particular purpose. The purpose might be a standardized node, a mesh networking node, or it might be a highly adapted solution to something like a data logger application.

This play day is intended to help spread the knowledge of how Personal Telco constructs these firmwares and, more generally, the finer points of how to build OpenWrt for any particular purpose you might have. And, if you find we do it in an idiotic way, you can suggest improvements. ;-)

This is a hands-on event. Bring yourself, your curiosity, and a linux box you can build on (or a way to connect over the network to one, like me).

You can bring a device too, but this is primarily a software-focused event. If there is enough time, we could start looking at flashing problems. If there is enough interest, we could have a follow up Play Day that focuses on those issues, a kind of Linux Clinic for your router.

Come on out and have some fun!

Personal Telco Project Weekly Meeting with Municipal Fiber discussion
Buffalo Gap,

This is our first Weekly Meeting of 2018. To get the new year off to a running start, we are going to lead off the meeting with a discussion about Municipal Fiber. I am always ready to talk about it, but particularly so this time because the simmering pot of public opinion had an extra jolt of fire over the holidays with the retrograde FCC vote, voiding the Open Internet rules that the previous Wheeler FCC had adopted, and has begun to boil over. A number of scattered efforts have emerged trying to push a municipal internet system (e.g. on Facebook and Reddit). I have invited a number of them to our meeting. I also saw David Olson (BCC'd) this morning and invited him to come along, which he suggested was a possibility, although he has another engagement, so he'll need to leave after the first hour.

And we have a smattering of other business on the agenda.

Should be fun! See you there!

Personal Telco Project Weekly Meeting with Municipal Fiber discussion
Bit House Saloon

Another discussion about what Muni Fiber looks like, and about how to make it happen, and progress on how it is happening. One downside of this venue is that I think it is 21+, so no minors this week. Sorry!

Personal Telco Project Weekly Meeting with Municipal Fiber discussion
Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

Another weekly meeting. There will be more people outraged over inaction on a Public Option for Internet (and, really, any telecommunications) by our City Council. At least, I hope so. I know I am.
