The Internet should be like the sidewalk connecting people, students, teachers, nonprofits and businesses without a toll booth controlled by private monopolies. Let’s network with each other to share our experiences and learn how to create our own infrastructures. Some people think they can expand Broadband Internet by giving people fish. Others offer to teach people how to fish. Let’s talk about how we can change the fishing industry!

From crimping an ethernet cable connection to tuning an antenna on a rooftop, let’s learn together.
