I like the idea of a communications utility owned by the local users.

My long term interests in wireless have been inspired by [ Nomad Research Labs], reading too much sci-fi, such as "A Deepness in the Sky" by Vernor Vinge, "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson and the Free Software Foundation's GNU project.

Something I came across recently addresses a problem with non-continous power. Sounds useful when my future solar powered recumbent temporarily runs out of juice. ;-)

I am also building a [ Cookbook 245 CCD Camera] for my 8 inch Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. I am working towards having a remote controlled astronomy lab in the rural mid-west US. Wireless links from the house to the top of the hill half a mile away as well as wind and solar power storage are necessary. Eventually I would like to contribute to amateur [ spectroscopy] measurements but that's a long ways away.
