Metapolitan Communities Program

An outreach program of the Metapolitan Community, the Neighborhood Node Center project is designed to bring a low cost, high quality of life to neighborhoods "in place".

The need for this program is urgent. Building sustainability into every neighborhood will give residents confidence and courage when the economic impact of sudden change threatens the stability of everyday life.

The Metapolitan intentional community is dedicated to creating a sustainable lifestyle offering a high quality of life at the lowest possible cost through the formation of two types of communities.

Metapolitan Neighborhood Node Centers

Metapolitan Neighborhood Node Centers are organizational tools for neighborhoods. Beginning with Neighborhoodware™, a complete off-grid stragy on a set of CDs, members can organize and develop programs that enable them to reduce costs and improve quality of life in their area.

Metapolitan Community Development Program

The Metapolitan Community Development Program is planning sustainable communities that utilize the Metacubic™ Standard. This is a standard for an omni-modal shipping and storage system based on a three cubic meter size.

The Metacubic standard is the basis of the Metapolitan Economic Development Strategy because it enables mobility at a much higher level. Using this technology we can easily move our homes contents from a house or apartment to storage or another location without professional assistance.

The Omni-modal transfer and storage system is an economic breakthough that will enable the Metapolitan Communities to prosper as resource costs rise.

Being Wireless
Nicholas Negroponte explains why Wi-Fi "lily pads and frogs" will transform the future of wireless

WiFi VOIP and the Last Arbitrage When you can make an end-to-end call most anywhere-to-anywhere for practically free, it changes everything

The Champaign-Urbana Community Wireless Network (CUWiN) is developing an open source, turnkey wireless networking solution that exceeds the functionality of many proprietary systems.  CUWiN's software will share connectivity across the network, allowing users to buy bandwidth in bulk and benefit from the cost savings. CUWiN networks are self-configuring and self-healing -- so adding new wireless nodes is hassle-free, and the system automatically adapts to the loss of an existing node. And, because CUWiN networks are completely ad-hoc, there's no need for expensive central servers or specialized administration equipment.

Become_a_wireless_isp for 300£  While the learned are laughing at Negroponte's fantastic "futuristic" vision of a mesh of interconnected wireless LANs "like lilypads which you hop from one to another" a UK company has produced Mesh wireless technology which you can buy and install, today, for under £300.

Meshcube.org The 4G AccessCube is a new hardware platform dedicated to WirelessLan MeshRouting, developed by  4G Systems, Hamburg, Germany.
