@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kYes 100%02:22:56
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kThis is why we made sure to push that this was not a MESH network but a COMMUNITY network.02:23:27
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kAS for the other point, another 100%.. To many solutions are Developer to Developer not end user to end user.02:24:17
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kOne reason i think that our network is so idle is because we pushed technology (we had an opportunity we would never have again so we took it) into a community instead of cultivating the culture that is needed to run the technology first.02:25:20
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kWhen people ask me "when will we put a node in my area" my answer is "as soon as you do it" 🙂 The network needs to grow organically and people need to take up the responsibility to organize and run their local nodes. We can provide support and guidance (whatever wee is left 😛 ) but the ground work needs to be done locally. Its the only way this will survive02:26:28
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kon a different note seem there is a huge up tick in Meshtastic nodes02:27:17
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kIve seen quite a few moving around over the last few months02:27:51

Interesting. I've been thinking that co-op housing here in Montreal could be a good target because they are often mission driven and share some common principles.

I hadn't really thought of cultivating a sense of ownership towards the project among users as important, but d'uh! Clearly hyper important. Also reinforces my thinking that housing co-ops might be down

@jszymski:matrix.orgjszymSuper interesting re: meshtastic. I think I'll have to pop into their discord to see what is motivating people there. I feel like it's way easier to set-up, but honestly can't imagine what folks are using it for.07:32:05
@jszymski:matrix.orgjszymText-based comms I guess...07:33:02

@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kThere is a commercial version called GoTenna... Think of it as Walki Takies but TEXTING. using off grid (hiking or camping where here is no infra)02:29:12
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kIts easier to setup becuase its got a much longer range and does not require line of site02:29:36
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kso it makes it easier to deploy (dont need density)02:29:53
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kthere is a new product out there https://www.lilygo.cc/products/t-deck which also support low - quality voice02:30:29
@Famicoman:matrix.orgFamicomanGotenna can go fuck themselves02:32:17
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2khahaha. 02:32:29
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2knot endorsing them02:32:36
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kjust saying they exist02:32:38
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kcould say the same thing about helium 😄02:33:05
@Famicoman:matrix.orgFamicomanFuck them too02:33:25
@Famicoman:matrix.orgFamicomanI remember when helium came out and my scam senses were tingling off the chart02:34:09
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kwhat kills me is their 5G nodes are not 5G. LTE02:34:13
@Famicoman:matrix.orgFamicomanHahah02:34:25
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2k(LTE is a better tech for the job.. but the slapped a 5G label on it)02:34:27
@Famicoman:matrix.orgFamicomanOf course, 5G has better press02:34:48
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kwe had a node shipped for a project... (couldnt get it shipped to candad ☹️ so had our friend in the us look at them)02:35:05
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kthey are like "there is no 5g tech in here"02:35:19
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2k * we had a node shipped for a project... (couldnt get it shipped to canada☹️ so had our friend in the us look at them)04:04:39
