seizing the means in terms of the internet means either fleshing out meshnets or raiding the server racks from datacenters, physically redistributing them, and then uncapping arbitrary limits on upload speed for home internet connections

@thufie of the two options, starting with city wide mesh seems to be the less bloody. The People's WiFi in Oakland works really well from my experience. The only reason it's not been replicated elsewhere seems to be convincing people to put the infrastructure on their roof tops. This isn't to say the technical problems aren't difficult, but it's doable.

@free_appalachia @thufie NYCMesh is pretty huge, and there's some huge community ISPs that are mesh in Spain and Germany

Smol server part of the infrastructure. Registration is approval-based, and will probably only accept people I know elsewhere or with good motivation.
