The GWOBorg descended upon New York City this weekend for H.O.P.E. X, the bi-annual hackers conference organized by the fine folks at 2600 Magazine. H.O.P.E. stands for Hackers On Planet Earth, one of the most creative and diverse hacker events in the world. It’s been happening every other year since 1994.

Willow and Diggz gave a talk called “Building an Open Source Cellular Network at Burning Man” and discussed the challenges of building infrastructure in the middle of nowhere and how that relates to the work that GWOB does in the humanitarian and crisis response space. For the past three years at Burning Man, GWOB has participated with camp Papa Legba. Here’s the video of our talk and the presentation:
