I'd be very interested in this workshop. I've thought about buying some
hardware and rolling out a custom OpenWRT firmware for hackerspaces.
I know there was a plan in Tog to roll out wireless access points with
PBX software/webUI firmware but I'd love to see custom access points
that would connect hackerspaces to either or both of ChaosVPN and
SpaceFed. Low power and less hassle :)
