Hello!

Sudo Mesh is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide internet access and promote digital justice across the Bay Area and beyond. We build community-owned wireless networks, develop free and open-source software and firmware, and give away laptops to those who can’t afford them. 

Hang out + newcomers’ night

Every first Tuesday of the month, we hold a Sudo Mesh Hang Out + Newcomers Night. We encourage anyone to come and get to know others who are interested and/or passionate about freeing the internet, building community networks, and expanding digital justice in all its forms!

  • WHEN: 7:30 – 9:00 PM First Tuesdays of the month
  • WHERE: Omni Commons Mezzanine (the area right above the main entrance, on the 2nd floor)
  • OPTIONAL THINGS TO BRING: A laptop. Food or drinks to share.

P.S. If you can’t make it to our Tuesday night meetings, check our BYOI office hours on Sunday afternoons!

What is Sudo Mesh? It is made up of several projects:

  • People’s Open Network — a group that is building a community-owned and operated wireless network in Oakland, Berkeley, and beyond.
  • Disaster Radio — a project to create disaster-resilient communications network powered by the Sun
  • Laptops for All — a grassroots endeavor to solicit laptop donations from startups and other organizations across the SF Bay Area and distribute them freely to those who can’t afford them. 

We need people of all backgrounds to help with everything from community involvement and grant writing to mounting antennas on buildings and developing software. All skills and levels of interest are encouraged to participate!
