Coming to a watering hole near you: OLPC's mesh networking

An article in the Australian Computerworld by Andrew Hendry discusses James Cameron's work on the mesh networking for OLPC.

I'm looking forward to when purchasing these Active Antenna mesh repeaters to deploy them here as well. I'm also looking forward to the 802.11s protocol being available in consumer routers to allow these connections to be better shared. I expect that OGWifi and similar public hotspot associations will be very interested.
