If everyone took the passwords off their wifi, we'd have a free, citywide wireless network. Sound like a good idea? Then help us make it happen!

Eyebeam's Open Cultures Research Group continues its two-part workshop in which participants are trained —and then train others—to open up a wifi network so that it is free, accessible, and secure for others while maintaining your bandwidth. This week, participants will work together on developing a "script" for spreading the knowledge in order to convert skeptical friends, family, and neighbors into open wireless ambassadors.
