Adam Longwill of MetaMesh is working to create mesh networks in neighborhoods across Pittsburgh. We talk about why this is a cheaper alternative to other public internet efforts, why this is different than the municipal internet efforts being shut down in some states, what can be provided on these networks aside from internet access, educating the public on the concept, how this changes a neighborhood, security for the business participating and more.
