Seattle Wireless

Seattle Wireless is an American non-profit project created by Matt Westervelt and Ken Caruso in June 2000. It seeks to develop a free, locally-owned wireless community network using widely-available, license-free technology wireless broadband Internet access. It is a metropolitan area network.

Seattle Wireless is one of the first Community Wireless Networks and one of the first project focused wikis. It also had a short lived (7 episode) online television show, prior to the recent surge in videocasting and podcasting, called Seattle Wireless TV. It was created by Peter Yorke and Michael Pierce and ran July 2003 - June 2004. SWTV was an early adopter of Bittorrent to distribute its shows.

Famous quotes containing the word seattle:

    If I’d written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people—including me—would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.
    Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
