HamRadioNow: Episode 46 - A Social Mesh?
Description: Is there another way to distribute the mobile Internet? How about if every one of us becomes a little node and we spread the data around to each other? Too radical? Maybe not. Sri has the background to make this suggestion serious. So check out his talk at the ARRL TAPR 2012 DCC and see if maybe he's got something here. One thing for sure - the incumbent network providers won't like it.


Micha Cardenas: “How do we find each other,” asks the Invisible Committee in The Coming Insurrection. Performed at Highways Performance Space, A Night of Transanarchism, April 6, 2012, Find Each Other is based on two custom made proximity sensing garments that use Xbee wireless mesh networking to activate electroluminescent wire when in each other's presence. Find Each Other is an experimental movement piece in which two performers explore space to the sound of poetry, using proximity sensing electronic garments from the Autonets series. Autonets is inspired by an urge to create technologies to facilitate communication for community based, anti-racist, prison abolitionist responses to gendered violence, creating networked fashion to reimagine social organization.

Local Autonomy Networks (Autonets) is a project focusing on creating wearable autonomous local networks that don’t rely on corporate infrastructures to function. I imagine these having a broad range of possible uses, but the initial inspiration was to create technologies to facilitate communication to prevent gendered violence, inspired by community based, anti-racist, prison abolitionist responses to violence. As part of this project, I also created a prototype line of clothing and accessories [Photos] [Video] exploring the possibilities for anti-capitalist fashion by experimenting with how EL wire might serve as a useful indicator for safety devices.
