Neighbornode

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Neighbornode is a captive portal on a residential Wi-Fi hotspot, containing a message board. It is designed to help neighbors who share an internet connection know each other better.[1]

The message board can only be accessed within range of the hotspot. Individual Neighbornodes can be linked together to create a supernode, vaguely like Fidonet. It is implemented as an alternative firmware for the Linksys WRT54G router.

The project was created by John Geraci of Interactive Telecommunications Program,[2][3] who also created Grafedia.
