Meta Mesh held an official PittMesh launch party last night, November 13, at The Hardware Store. More than 60 folks, including Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto showed up and enjoyed wonderful cuisine from Sweet Peaches to celebrate and learn more about our fledgling mesh network.
We also were covered by Pittsburgh Business Times and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Our Twitter was quite abuzz with our efforts, and it’s very energizing to have the social media support to widen the audience of our community-focused message.
You can see pictures posted on the Meetup event photo album.
We met some generous Pittsburghers who live in Allentown and want to help spread PittMesh throughout the neighborhood for which we received a grant from the URA. We met lots of other Pittsburghers who can’t wait to use PittMesh wherever they are.
If you are among them, contact us. We’re looking for both hardware and funding for PittMesh, the community-owned wireless network in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
