WasabiNet on KSDK

"The economics of mesh networks is fascinating and holds out the promise of bringing basic Internet connectivity to all residents of a neighborhood at a minimal cost – and for some residents, at no cost. When I heard about Google's plans to bring gigabit fiber-optic Internet to a given number of communities in the United States, I started monitoring which communities had existing plans to roll out mesh networks. Such networks are often grassroots projects, organized by tech-savvy community activists. One of the most interesting of these is WasabiNet, organized by some good people in St. Louis. A quick perusal of this project's Website reveals that this project is for real and has been well thought out."

Here are some examples of the comments we received in response to our original proposal in 2008:
  • “All these proposals sound great, but I think that WasabiNet will help to bridge the community.”
  • “WasabiNet = immediate economic & social impact”
  • “This was tough. My deciding factor was listening to Obama speak about posting government spending online. Obviously, the Obama team is going to use the Internet as a tool and I think we need to show this to the kids who may be influenced by him.”
  • “This (WasabiNet) is a true service to everyone who lives and works along Cherokee.”
