Hebden Bridge wireless event Saturday July 19th

Posted 17th July 2003.

Stop press: Friday, July 18, 2003 - this event has had to be postponed because of venue problems.


I would like to invite you along to The Java Lounge and The Inn on The Bridge this Saturday July 19th.

Have you ever fancied yourself as an Edison, Logie-Baird, Marconi or one of the Wrights? Want a chance to innovate? Not got much time, or technical knowledge?

We are exploring a way of linking all the computers in our valley - wirelessly. The possibilities involve local radio/tv gaming and business.

On Saturday we will gather in Java Lounge and Inn on the Bridge from 10:30 onwards. During the day we will set up computers to communicate with each other wirelessly. We will transmit all the way over Market Street :-) between the venues.

When we have computers communicating we will try out some of the possibilities: tv/radio or gaming. If you come along I imagine you might learn all manner of things about this project.

You can come along with or without your laptop/computer. If you do bring your machine along we will help you set it up; otherwise you can learn from the machines we will be setting up. Later we'll form teams based in Inn on the Bridge and Java Lounge and challenge each group to a game.

I think a valley wireless network could be hugely fun and worthwhile; come and join us on Saturday at the inception.
