Dory, David, Edward, Michael met to talk though a few ideas that could be used as part of Wireless Toronto's presence at this year's Alley Jaunt. our thoughts centred on making the invisible elements of the space tangible to visitors.
Some ideas include:
We'll meet again in a couple weeks and see where we are at. The submission deadline is early March so we've not much time.
We four met again to refine some of the ideas.
Dory had a great fun one of converting the assigned garage into a travel agency. This would set the mood for 'travel' through the newly identified space and we could provide some education component by allowing us to talk about wireless networks as a space, wehat can be done in them, as well as the work wireless toronto does smashingly well.
We're still mostly talking the same ideas; demarcate the existing space and display the content (images from sniffed packets of that space.
Converting network activity to sound, and broadcasting that through a low-power FM transmitter, seemed like a popular option and a few
Lastly, Dory's knack for craft provided a good solution through her old school labeler (white raised letters on blue plastic) all we need now is some magnetic paper and the SSID poetry can begin.

If the SSID poetry does get included we should be sure to bring a digital camera or two and a laser printer. It'd be cool to let someone take home their poem and we could archive the pics and document the project.
No word on the jaunter's deadline, still 'early march.'
We should continue to think about the ideas and define requirements and possible sources when we next meet.
