In the last year, we've seen consumer grade wireless equipment prices fall dramatically as more and more manufacturers integrate wireless into their own products. Articles about various aspects of wireless networking have made international news, including strange tales of WarChalking shenanigans and War Driving, Pringles can-wielding Secret Service agents. Wireless is now practically everywhere, having found its way into coffee houses, parks, schools, offices, and many people's homes.

Community Wireless networkers around the planet are building their vision of the new Internet age: a ubiquitous, high bandwidth network as freely available as the air we breathe.

Rob Flickenger will explore the current state of Community Wireless Networks, including the ideologies, do-it-yourself hardware, and of course, Open Source software that are building the wireless utopia.
