Hey Brisbaner! Want to join a Superfast, Wireless Peer To Peer Community?

Brisbane has a sophisticated and superfast wireless peer-to-peer network, BrisMesh.Org

Nodes in the brisMesh network

BrisMesh is a way of sharing files and communicating in an unlimited way, at speeds that p*ss all over commercial wireline technologies, like modem, ADSL and broadband.

The procedure for joining Brismesh is as follows:

  1. Add yourself to the Brismesh node database and check out what nodes are around that you can connect to. Make a note of your node entry number - you need this on the membership form.
  2. Fill in the membership form. If you don't have a proposer and seconder, leave them blank and the management committee will fill them in.
  3. Post or email a scan of the signed, completed form to the secretary, as described at the bottom of the form.
  4. Upon receipt of the application an acknowledgment and details of how to pay the membership fee will be sent to you ASAP.
  5. Pay the membership fee (via direct deposit or in person at a meeting).
  6. Your details will be added to the membership database.

Some of you may be relieved to know that the 'Bris' in the title is a common abbreviation for the city of Brisbane, Australia -- and not a reference to the Jewish circumcision ceremony of the same name.

[Disclosure: The 'president' of this organisation is my cousin, Paul James. Top bloke he is too. Their website is hosted by my old Alma Mater.]
