15:00 – 16:00 Presentation of the Freedombox Search Project alexander klosch (Kloschi) The “Freedombox Search Project” is a project for Free Search Engines in local networks. We offer easy and professional lightweight server solutions and tools to search local community mesh, school and company networks. The project team works on easy to install and energy saving miniservers, that are distributed with preconfigured settings and include digital libraries, freely licensed content, music, teaching materials and a local copy of the Wikipedia. Users in a local network can access a search portal through a web browser. The Open Source search engine crawls content, that is hosted on the webserver. As soon as users offer content on their own devices in the network, this content is added to the index after a search robot crawled and added it.

17:00-17:20 Presentation of node: Issues at Play in Free Wireless Networks Yann Bona, Efraín Foglia, Roger Baig In these 20 minutes we will present and propose an ongoing interviewing task-force that will act during the ninux day(s). Our interest draws from a will to share and gather some information relevant to and for different free wireless Networks / Communities / Projects / Collectives during the Ninux day. In order to do so, we have cerated a small set of questions that express some matters of concern relevant to us ( people, hackers, geeks, nerds, engineers, artists, curious and academics…) and from which we think other hackers, geeks… will also benefit from as long as we get some answers. We have set a node on Sunday where results and outcomes of this “task-force” will be presented and further discussed in a debate-like session. What we are aiming at is not just a matter of stating differences among networks but to know what possible solutions or ways of addressing certain issues have other networks reached. Thus, offering a myriad of possibilities from which to better mirror (or not) ourselves.
18:00 – 19:00 Netsukuku: State of the art and demo Luca Dionisi Netsukuku is a P2P network system designed to handle massive numbers of nodes with minimal consumption of CPU and memory resources.
