Burning Man brings Internet to New Orleans

Maybe those Burning Man people aren’t completely worthless after all:

Now the group, known as Burners Without Borders, is using new Kyocera mobile hot-spot technology to create a wide-area-network in an area with little, if any, Internet access. Their shoestring network, based on $250 routers and $150 wireless cards, could prove to be a model for other volunteer groups in disaster areas.

The credit goes to Kyocera, and it’s a very cool little deal they’ve got.
