Free, City-Wide WiFi, Brought to You by YOU

Another cool Eyebeam project:

"If everyone took the passwords off their wifi, we'd have a free, citywide wireless network. Sound like a good idea? Then help us make it happen!

"Eyebeam's Open Cultures Research Group will be running a two-part workshop in which participants will be trained on how to open up a wifi network so that it is free, accessible, and secure for others to use without losing any bandwidth. Participants will also work together on developing a "script" for spreading the knowledge in order to convert skeptical friends, family, and neighbors into open wireless ambassadors."
The workshop is at Eyebeam on April 18; hopefully they'll put the "script" online for the rest of us soon.
