Wireless lan for your neighbourhood.


Just think, if all our neighbourhoods had networks, and then we could join
them up, we'd have one big, global network, then we could email from one

Seriously, when I move to the land of no cable/ASDL, I'm going to get
satellite broadband and distribute it to my neighbours via WLAN.
