Michael Bauer - On the route to free infrastructure - FunkFeuer Vienna

FunkFeuer networks are free infrastructure IP-networks in Austria. They        
rely heavily on wireless lan and dynamic routing. In this talk I will          
shortly touch upon the history of FunkFeuer in Austria, specifically           
Vienna; elaborate a bit on fundamental rules and technologies; and finally     
proceed to my vision of free infrastructure.                                   
                                                                               
About me: I'm a geek of medical sciences (so far) grown to love mingling       
with technology. Having free systems for me is vital to satisfy my thirst      
for knowledge. Along my way I was a founding member of the Chaos Computer      
Club Erfa in vienna which pretty much dissolved into the Metalab. In 2003      
me and some friends collaborated with quintessenz (the austrian digital        
civil liberties defense squat) to create a free and anonymous access point.    
This got us attention from other places and we were offered to take over a     
formerly provider run W-LAN network. We knew what to do.
