Joi - can you post some notes on this panel when you get a chance?

Good to see you, too, Joi.

We got some use out of some stories of the old days. Wireless meshes are another way of expanding the same network community, like DSL, T-1, ISDN, and modems before.

A conference organizer told me after the panel that he thought it was the best he had seen all conference.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the panel by jonl:
