Building autonomous communication infrastructure was the theme of a workshop called TRANSMESH.
Held during the World Social Forum in Tunisia as part of the World Forum of Free Media, the workshop presenters explained how to install a MESH network. This technology allows for the sharing content digitally over community networks that are independent of corporation or government control.
