NYCwireless May Meeting

[ Sorry due to an ftp problem this live blog entry is somewhat delayed. Just pretend. ] Doc is here. Cool.... Same format as last month. Intro talk followed by breakout sessions. Not as many new folks tonight. Ben Serbin did his normal intro talk with some more technical details on a/b/g. Chris (?) is up now and he is a regional coordinator for the World Wide Wardrive! Yikes lots of distracted drivers between June 28th and July 5th. Sounds like a cool idea if they can get a ton of people. They might actually get meaningful stats for certain areas. I'm not sure what it will mean from a global perspective. Yuri Gitman is up now talking about forming a NYCwireless Art SIG. Like Noderunner...whacky. Of course this is pretty interesting because art is the ultimate application. Another goal of the Art SIG is to have people present vintage PDAs that have been resurrected into new life by becoming Dana Speigle(sp) is now up talking about the APP SIG. Mapping sofware for PDAs, community software for NYCwireless, portal software for location based setups are all on the agenda for the APP SIG. NYCwireless chat is location aware. Justin (?) speaking a bit on membership. I think that's been talked about this before. Ben's back. Yikes Freenetworks conference on hold. Looks like the time and place may have killed it. They may reschedule and go on the west coast.
