Going to the Wireless Summit in DC Tomorrow

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

Wireless Summit LogoI'm headed to Washington tomorrow for the International Summit for Community Wireless Networks. There are several sessions tomorrow, of which I'll probably attend Using Wireless Networks for Human Rights and Wireless Sensor Networks for sure. It's not so much the actual hardware or technical implementations I'm interested in. Rather it's what wireless networks (e.g. WiFi) can provide - a means to communicate and share information.

There will of course be wireless there (I would hope), so I'll be twittering during the event. I'm not sure what to expect. Either I will be really interested or super bored. Hopefully it's the former.
