Free WiFi Mesh Network for Boston

Paul McMorrow writes in The Weekly Dig: Boston's WHY-FI:
"Boston’s new free wireless network isn’t free at all. And according to the mayor’s wireless task force, that’s why Boston’s municipal WiFi initiative will be so good, certainly heads and shoulders above every other city’s free WiFi initiative.

There are lots of free WiFi networks in Boston already, and what's going to happen is that a grassroots movement is going to develop. A mesh network for free wireless that government can't imagine will propogate itself and we'll be browsing the internet for free when the city's pay per view system arrives in two years.
