Aside from no NDAs and good vibes, a massive net connection is a base
requirement. I remember finding very cool venue in the Presidio, for an
early iftf.org geo event in 2004, that had no broadband. We had to
sweet talk SFlan into deflecting signal into our space from the
Internet Archive. These days, if we find a space with no net access,
I guess we could round up a bunch EV-DO and Edge enabled wifi base
stations, asssuming decent signal strength.
Seriously, what do we need? 10-40mbits per person x n wherecampers ?
