Hi Dan and all,
Did some reading and it all looks to have some possibilities (and
problems :0).

Do interested parties want to meet up one evening and chat about 'where
to go' and 'how we get there'?

The main questions I think that need to be answered are:
1). 'TOC' - how much is this 'fun' going to cost me? Can I fake up a
Freifunk node with a PC & (hostap) wireless card?

2). How does the IP scheme works between nodes/clients? I don't think it
looks that scalable and doesn't cope with mobile clients....
