Hi all, I'm copying in this e-mail Monic Meisel's answers to our
"application form" (representing Freifunk)
Two more representatives will be joining the Council, they are deciding who.
Please send any questions in reply to this e-mail. This is one of the "obvious"
candidates we had proposed, so I propose we wait untill Friday and if there's no
formal opposition to their inclusion in the council I'll add them in ISOC's
system and in the council list. Raise your hand if you don't agree!
We build community networks.
Free networks are being set up and maintained by more and more people. Anyone can make
their Wi-Fi router available for data transfer for others, helping to create a free
infrastructure. Every user in the free wireless network provides his or her wireless LAN
router for data transfer to other participants. In return, he or she can also transmit
data, such as text, music and movies through a free internal network or use services setup
by participants to chat, call or play online games. We use mesh networks.
Many also share their internet access and allow others to use it to access the World Wide
Web. Free wireless are DIY-networks. We use our own freifunk firmware a special Linux
distribution, on our WLAN routers.
Local freifunk communities provide software adapted to their own needs and then on their
websites. There are more and more free wireless groups that meet regularly access in
villages and cities. https://freifunk.net/en/how-to-join/find-your-nearest-community/
The freifunk community is part of a global movement for free infrastructure and open
frequencies. Our vision is the democratization of the media through free networks. Free
wireless communities implement this idea worldwide.
What Does Free Wireless Network Mean To Us?
• publicly and anonymously accessible
• non-commercial and uncensored
• decentralized and in the possession of a community
• Educating and creating awareness on the subject of communication and freedom of
• Reducing the digital divide
• Unhindered distribution of knowledge and resources
• Empowering people to build and operate their own networks
• Promote and support existing and new social structures
We want to connect neighborhoods, villages and regions to counter the digital divide and
build free, independent network structures, such as unlicensed community radio, broadcast
of local events, private digital swap meets and shared of internet access.
Exchange in the free networks is not based on commercial interests, but on voluntary
giving and taking by each and everyone on the network. This idea is drafted in the
Many smart people have organized themselves in free network projects, supporting and
helping new campaigners to adapt the software for free.
Areas of Interest:
Advance the field of wireless mesh networking and foster the development of grass-roots
community networks. We contribute to digital freedom rights movement, humanitarian aid,
empowerment of peoples tech/net/media competency and a free and open civil society.
