There are Temporary Autonomous Zones, and now there are Temporary Telecommunication Autonomous Zones. The Personal Telco Group of Portland, OR, is creating the latter out of a used satellite truck. The group, associated with the freenetwork movement, is reverse-engineering a broadcast television machine to create a roving, open node: Internet access by the people, for the people. If in the Portland area, attend the next meeting to see how you can help. Also, the group is seeking "any number of bizarre things" to do with the truck once its on the go.
