New York City Meshnet
The New York City Meshnet is an attempt to locally connect to people from Hyperboria in NYC with wireless nodes.
We have two nodes up! We're looking for more nodes, if you'd like to connect, join us in the IRC channel (see below) and ask.
IRC Channel is #nycmeshnet on EFNet (web chat)

Phase 1. Gathering Nodes
The first step in making a successful meshlocal is to actually gather people who are interested in making a meshlocal. We are currently in this phase, and are gathering nodes through IRC, Reddit, and our Google Maps page.
Phase 2. Gathering Equipment
Once we get enough nodes that are close enough to connect to each other, we need equipment to connect to them. I would advise looking at Hardware for the type of equipment we need.
Phase 3. Connecting Nodes
Once we have nodes and the equipment, we need to actually connect people. We will probably do some test runs in the park like the Seattle Meshlocal did.
Phase 4. Connecting to other Meshlocals
Assuming we all can connect to each other, it would be a good idea to try and connect to other nearby meshlocals, such as the Philadelphia Meshlocal.
