First Local Digital Service
The First United Church of Kopimism, US has conducted it’s first-ever local digital service. There were approximately 12 people present, and 7 participated in the service. In accordance with Kopimi tradition, the physical space was declared a local interaction point for Kopimist worship. Participants then connected to a Wi-Fi network labeled KopimiBox, which was being served by a slightly-modified version of The Pirate Box (see picture for our version). After connecting, users were free to upload and download at will.
The event was a tremendous success, as there were no significant connectivity problems. Many thanks to the wonderful people associated with the Pirate Box project for their excellent Wiki and tireless work to ensure the continued innovation of wireless, anonymous dataspace. We chose the Pirate Box platform for our worship service because it ensured anonymity, prevented malicious connectivity to the internet, and readily mobile. The Pirate Box software was run on a TP-Link 150 Mbps TL-MR3020 open WRT router connected to a standard 120V wall socket.
’til next time,
seed the sacrament,
