Aaron Swartz Day Hackathon Radio Edition

Hello all, I wanted to let people know that there is a special Aaron Swartz Day Hackathon is going on right now. We are building small LoRa radio modules and OP25 GNUradio systems to turen into emergency radio mesh network for people to use around the bay during emergencies, power outages, cell disruptions, and events where the cell networks might be overloaded.

you can find info on how to help here.

another project we are improving is the Swartz Manning VR Museum that Lisa, Me, LXPK, Bernice, and a few others started in 2017.
that project can be found here


A few noisebridgers are already involved, and thought that some of you would also be interested as well.

I was reading the meeting notes and fyi Sudoroom is developing “disaster radio” for communicating with solar-powered lora radios via Secure Scuttlebutt. This would make a good extension to text messages, as it would allow additional communication options using those lora devices + is solar.

Awesome, what are the details and differences between the two?
