Saverio from the Italian Ninux community has published a video interview Daniel Paufler and I conducted with them at the Wireless Community Weekend in Berlin. Thank you very much for the great montaggio! It is real fun to watch!

Towards Wireless Open Hardware Routers and WLAN Servers

At the CeBIT I had the chance to talk to some fantastic folks of direct open embedded systems, a new Latvian company that is producing WLAN devices based on the GNU/Linux distributions like OpenWRT, OpenEmbedded and FlashSYS Linux.

In the video they present their devices and some show cases as well as FlashSYS, their own web based firmware for small router computers.

FlashSYS environment is a cross-operating system clent-server environment that allows developers to use existing web development skills (HTML, JavaScript, Ajax, Flash, SQLite, and Lua) to build and deploy Rich Internet Applications (RIA) for an embedded system with a very small footprint. (http://openrb.com)

direct open embedded systems is able to produce WLAN devices that can act as small web servers with currently up to 64 GB storage space.


Most of the free and open source companies presented their products in hall 5, which was packed with crowds of people. You can get an idea when you hear the background noise in the video. The interest in free and open source technologies is amazing and ever increasing.

Freedom of Exchange of data and information in Freifunk free wireless networks

It is often stated that the Internet is the basis of the free communication and exchange of software and content – all kinds of information and knowledge. Yes, the Internet especially in the 1990’s could be regarded as a free infrastructure that enabled free exchange. This is changing rapidly throughout the world, as we see a trend to censoring of information all over the world and privately enforced censoring with the help of copyright and patent laws.

Globaler Freifunk-Feed-Newswire online

Ein globaler Freifunk-Newswire ist jetzt unter http://global.freifunk.net zu erreichen. Hier gibt es zudem eine Übersicht über Freifunk-Initiativen weltweit. Bisher konnte ich 271 landesweite, regionale und lokale Freifunk-Projekte aus 33 Ländern identifizieren. Obwohl die Anzahl von Initiativen noch nichts über die tatsächliche Zahl der Teilnehmer aussagt, verdeutlicht die Vielzahl der Projekte bereits den weltweiten Trend zum Aufbau von freien Netzen.
