BOF16: How to Start a Community Co-Location Project in Your City
08/08/2007, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Isabela Fernandes, FOUNDER, ORGANIZER, SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR, San Francisco Community Colocation Project.
San Francisco CCP is a node in a larger network of non-profit community colocation
projects. CCP's collectively purchase space at colocation facilities and spread the
costs across every member (who must be non-profit community groups or free software
projects). This enables non-profits to rack their own servers at cost. We will
discuss organizational logistics and how to start a community colo in your own city.
We'll also discuss the importance of community networks and the value of
collectively-owned ISP's in terms of free speech and digital rights.
We'll look at our court case with Diebold as an example.
