I just wanted to hear about free open nodes people have found in their area. Here we have the Personal Telco Project which is a non-profit that runs around town getting people and business owners to set up free open nodes. Eventually they'd like to be able to connect them, but of course scalability becomes a problem there amongst other issues. And once we start getting a free wireless net, that would be when the ISPs will step in and try to quash it.

Anyhow, we have a number of businesses who have contributed by unwiring places like Pioneer Courthouse Square and the South Park blocks. Although it is not totally up to date, here is a map of some of the nodes peope have put up.

Personal Telco has slowly been spreading... alot of communities in different states and countries have been doing this also. What is in your area? Any )( signs in the windows?
