    FLOSS Weekly had a pretty interesting episode featuring Steve Song and Terry Gillet about their project that uses small cheap devices to form a wireless mesh network to join areas together to communicate.

    They've already got some gear deployed in South Africa.

    It's always good to see technology or business applied to improving the lives or addressing social problems.
