If you're in Southern California:

The So Cal Wireless Users Group (http://www.socalwug.org) is meeting,
Thursday 09/28/06 at 7pm (Pacific).

Presentation:

Himalayan wireless from the Tibetan Technology Center

Hacking the Himalayas is a series on NPR from tech journalist Xeni Jardin.
She explores how Tibetan exiles are reconnecting with their past and
embracing the future partly from a growing wireless mesh network.
Technicians have to monkey-proof the system. Literally from monkeys swinging
on antennas! Meanwhile, buddhist monks are emailing each other from their
temples and others are reaching out internationally with websites telling
their story.
