NodeFPU (nomasters) is a warehouse on top of Northcote hill ( External link Pictures ) that holds events, benefits, gigs, meetings and other assorted things for various street-level groups, and where we are trying to get an 'information station' going, extending services into the wireless world.

We have considered this in the past, and always seen it as an obvious extension to our networks, especially locally, and with pricing keeping the information technology out of many ground level organisations ability, need plays a large part.

There are a large number of people in the immediate area, most with pc's and into DIY and alternative type stuff. We are in LOS of most of Melbourne and suburbs from the roof :)
