“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if you might know about any plans to establish community wireless mesh networks in DC. I had no idea these even existed until reading about them in the NYTimes and what a great idea — I would love to organize internet access with neighbors and not deal with the big companies. Based on some quick google searches, it seems that Mount Pleasant had/has one, but what other areas of DC? I live in Petworth, for what it’s worth.”

Is this the DC Community Access Network? Did one of these mesh networks ever get set up in Bloomingdale?
