SOLD OUT!

Created during the Fall 2012 Residency season at Eyebeam, Subnodes (http://subnod.es/) is an open source initiative designed to streamline the process of setting up a Raspberry Pi as a wireless access point for distributing content and taking part in shared digital experiences. The device behaves as a web server, creating its own local area network, and does not connect with the internet. This is key for the sake of offering a space where people can communicate anonymously and freely, as well as maximizing the portability of the network (no dependability on an internet connection means the device can be taken and remain active anywhere).

This course will show you how to set up your Raspberry Pi as a web server and wireless access point. We will also cover how to create a local area network with a captive portal for directing users to your web app.

If everyone took the passwords off their wifi, we'd have a free, citywide wireless network. Sound like a good idea? Then help us make it happen!

Eyebeam's Open Cultures Research Group continues its two-part workshop in which participants are trained —and then train others—to open up a wifi network so that it is free, accessible, and secure for others while maintaining your bandwidth. This week, participants will work together on developing a "script" for spreading the knowledge in order to convert skeptical friends, family, and neighbors into open wireless ambassadors.

Eyebeam's Open Cultures Research Group will be running a two-part workshop in which participants will be trained on how to open up a wifi network so that it is free, accessible, and secure for others to use without losing any bandwidth. Participants will also work together on developing a "script" for spreading the knowledge in order to convert skeptical friends, family, and neighbors into open wireless ambassadors.

Bring your laptop and your wifi router, and we'll show you how to set up your own secure open wireless network!
