I admit to being a software rather than a hardware person, and being more high-level at that, so maybe there's a technological reason for it but: WHY can we not just take a whole buttload of Pi Zero W based devices (N-O-D-E nano server style) running a mesh network, plug them in all over Philadelphia, and solve [some of] the connectivity problems in low-income neighborhoods?

(This train of thought started with "Ooh Pi 400! Affordable computer!" but then thinking that's not the real issue.)


@gamehawk I'd say its perfectly doable if enough ppl get behind the idea.
