Cool new video about a mesh network in Nairobi

Was excited to see this new video about building a mesh network to expand internet access in the Mathare slum in Nairobi, from friends at BRCK.

Part of the innovation here is in the business model - they’re selling ads and micro-tasks to generate enough revenue so that end users needn’t pay money for access. In general I’m skeptical of how much of the internet (and thus society generally) relies on ad revenue, but in this case the model seems really smart way to expand access. :slightly_smiling_face:
