interesting idea, a PromoMesh (-;
but i think it does not need a complete new format, as i think one week of
promotion would be too much (for both sides)
so it could be one part promotional event (a basic introduction /
presentation of mesh networks on one day, and followed by the building off
the testbed, or even a long term deployment as a hands on workshop) and one
part battlemesh (maybe again one with some actual tests, but with less
highly technical or off-topic talks)
