Project PlaceSite

March 13th, 2005

Imagine opening your laptop computer in a neighborhood wireless Internet caf� and firing up a Web browser. Instead of your usual startup page, imagine this on your screen:

That’s the core of Project PlaceSite. It introduces a new way of using wireless networks — to create a local information service by, for and about people who are in the same caf� together.

We’re rolling it out in Berkeley in a few weeks. Details: www.placesite.com.

Please let us know what you think. And come out and take part!

    Cool. We’re doing the same kinda thing up in Montreal. We developped some open-source software to do the same location/community based stuff. check it out at http://www.ilesansfil.org/wiki/WiFiDog

    It’s also greatly inspired by the “third place” concept.

    It is now running our 30 hotspots. You can check out the central server in action at http://auth.ilesansfil.org

    cheers,

    We’re doing something similiar in Seattle with a local cafe on the ‘Ave - we’re using a CMS and modding it to fit the owners desires, and gathering the data from that. Cool stuff.
