Welcome to ColumbusFreenet.org

A community technology resource

ColumbusFreenet.org is a volunteer-driven project to create a free wireless network in Columbus Georgia. We are Incorporated, and have filed for charitable non-profit status. We are currently working with other non-profits in the city to make ColumbusFreenet.org a substantial contributor to the Columbus Georgia & surrounding communities.

About This Site

This site is created entirely by volunteers, using quality open source software like Linux, Apache, PHP, Wikimedia, and the GIMP. The content was created and tested using Mozilla Firefox. The site is designed to maximize collaborative effort using the wiki design philosophy. Most of the artistic layout came from a combination of George Adkins' concept logos, and the Wikipedia layout (the stylesheets of which were ruthlessly hacked where needed.)

The principal web-ninja and server administrator is BandWith. Don't forget to support your friendly neighborhood CHAOS geeks!
