Link for CommonsFest
We checked the possibility to connect the CommonsFest exhibition venue to Rogdia and it seems likely. It remains to check the visibility from the roof of the CommonsFest exhibition venue. Dimitris K. should be able to gain access to the roof. It might be also possible to connect to other nodes, but it seems difficult because of the slope. The equipment that will be set up on the CommonsFest venue's node will be borrowed, either from spares that we have at τοlabάκι or from a temporary sponsor.
In order to stream video+audio live from the CommonsFest events (and others to come) we want to set up a virtual machine (VM) which connects to the IP of the Leaseweb server in Netherlands. This VM might ether run on the leasweb server directly or on Orionis or Okeanos. Who can set up such a service?
HWMN presentation at CommonsFest
Zeptomoon and DaKnOb will present a task about HWMN and the philosophy and purpose of community-run communication networks. Duration will be only about 15min. Zeptomoon will work on the talk then DaKnOb will translate it to Greek.
Up'n'Ready Node kit
At the CommonsFest, we want to present a set of hardware ready to be deployed. Or at least including all the hardware necessary to set up an HWMN node. Foivos said he could pre-finance that set. We need to make a list of things, that this Node Kit should include.
It was planned to have an ANTENNathon on Saturday 1st of March. But later it turned out that the event had to be canceled/postponed. We need to find a new date for the ANTENNathon.
It was discussed if and how we can proceed with setting up a node on the building of τοlabάκι. Not sure what the status is there... (someone please add to this!)
We decided that it is useful/necessary that major nodes have more than one admin, because they are crucial to the network and if the main admin is not available a co-admin can take over. It was discussed how it it could be possible that multiple users can have access to the AirOS and to the OpenWRT administration web-interface. We decided to go the fast and easy way (for now) and share random root passwords though a secure channel (in person/GPG/etc.) To ease the shared administration, it would be helpful to maintain a wiki page about each shared node with the most important structural info.
List of co-admins:
- τοlabάκι node
- most people on Xestra list
- Rogdia node
- UoC radio station node
- 2 other of the group
- Capt'Joe node
- Zeptomoon node
- gKiagia node
- Sque node
