sounds interesting :)
In freifunk we just have some web cams and minecraft servers that are used actively and
some local repositories ... no one used our experiments with diaspora as fb alternative or
voip services over time.
In ancient times we run a local mirror of wikipedia... or did some live streaming from a
band in a bar. we also had shared tv settop boxes :)
My idea of local content for refugee camps never came to live due to capacity limits to
organize coops with people who could provide educational contents or faqs or other
relevant stuff. also we would have switched roles to decide, what kind of content is
there, if we would have organized it ... or at least you need to organize and enable it in
a very open way and educate even more ... content opens a new dimension in terms of
liability and responsibility and so on ...
My experience is, it would be hard to explain, if there is internet access at the same
time ... only if there is no www access there is a use case and strong need for local
services or content. and the idea of content centric networks (first ask your neighbor
before you reach out further) is not common or implemented ...
just my 5cents, hope it helps?

I'm in the process of writing an article on local content in community
networks for the GISSWatch 2018. I'm focusing on our experience, but I'd
like to mention relevant initiatives or examples from other communities.
If anyone wishes to share a paragraph on experiences you have taken part
of, please contact me or just share in reply to this e-mail.
Thank you all in advance!
