The Digital Stewards 2014 training program will focus on wireless mesh technology. Wireless mesh networks are local "intranets" that allow neighbors to share Internet connections and develop applications to support community problem-solving. Through this program, you will assess your community’s technology needs and then learn how to facilitate the design, construction, and maintenance of a wireless mesh network in your neighborhood.
