Why was Project Meshnet established?

Project Meshnet was established in December 2011 by Daniel Supernault. After Supernault became aware of the increasing trend of uncertanity and lack of organization within the subreddit /r/darknetplan, which these ideas originated from, Project Meshnet was formed.

MeshLocals

What is a MeshLocal?

Meshlocals are community projects that create a publicly-accessible geographically-local network of decentralized mesh hardware, owned by individuals, but working together for everyone's benefit. They can be stitched together from many types of physical links - WiFi, fiber optic, free space optical, ethernet cables - into one consistently-accessible microcosm of the greater global network.

What MeshLocals currently exist?

Take a look at the list of MeshLocals.

How do I build a MeshLocal node?

For one way to build a publicly-accessible autopeering MeshLocal node, see Wireless Autopeering Tutorial.
