Why am I doing this?

I've written a few of my thoughts about why I'm involved with this project. These thoughts were originally posted to the email list during the Summer of 2001

Wireless guide to hitch hiking

Anyone on the list old enough to have hitched hiked during the 1960s or 1970s? Well I did. I was living in Southern California and a freshman at San Diego State in 1971. I lived in Mission Beach. I had a 1960 red VW van. I hitch hiked to school some days and drove my van and picked up hitch hikers on others.

It was a regular routine. All the students that lived in Mission Beach would line up at on spot and wait for cars to stop. You barely had to stick out your thumb. It was great, you knew you could share your car with others and that someone would share their car with you. You got to meet different people and also meet your regular friends.

Wireless network should be the same way. A wireless community will allow us to share the internet. I do not see the wireless community movement eliminating the need for ISPs. The auto makers never considered that hitch hiking would lower auto sales.

There also was no fear of getting in a car with strangers because most people were students going to the same place. You could also easily identify who was a student and who was not. In the wireless community we also need an easy way to secure our networks while make it easy to use.

For the music

Below are links to some interesting articles about radio (the original wireless network). I've seen enough corporate take over in my years on this planet. I'm not knocking big business, I work for one, and I do not march in May Day parades. I voted for Regan, Bush, Clinton, Gore so I consider my self politically confused.

I did not care about whales or smog. Church bombings bothered me and so did Vietnam, but I never protested.

So what gets me off my butt to go to PTP meetings and keeps me at my computer doing logos and trying to make wireless work? Crappy segregated music on radio stations and computerized play list with commercial readers for DJs. Why should I have to be tethered to a desk to have decent music. Did we take a technological step forward but two steps backwards culturally? PTP should distinguish itself not as a bunch of technical folks who can do it, but a bunch of technical folks that can do it with style and common sense. We have to weave the technology into the human fabric (hey what about a antenna on a Borg Cube for a T-Shirt) so that it serves us and not the other way around.

I want to buy as many antennas and servers as I can to restore the art of weaving music the way it should be done, by a human from your heart.

Bethany Boondocks is ON Line 6/21/01

Well it is about time. It is 23:30 and I'm on the street at 18090 NW Avalon about a block from my house at 18095 NW Tillamook Drive. This is cool!

My node is named zappa I have a Orinoco node with a 12db omni antenna and a AP-1000 access point.

Testing June 2001

This is where I'll post test data from my node. This test was conducted on 6/21/01 from 00:05 to 00:35. I took my laptop and walked up the street from my house. I stopped at mail boxes and took readings. I have posted the data on a web page.

I am no wireless wiz or cartographer, but maybe some of the information will be helpful.

Testing June 2002

On 6/15/02 I mounted my parabolic antenna in my truck bed with the help of a Little Tikes basket ball hoop. I went across Highway 26 from my house and parked in the Centennial Bank parking lot. I connected it to my laptop and aimed the antenna towards my house. I was able to get a signal at a distance of 2,100 feet through lots of trees.

My next goal is to try to get a signal from inside the Coffee People in Tanasbourne.
