Ask Slashdot: 4G Networking Advice For Large Outdoor Festival?
For survey purposes i would suggest finding an old nokia (3310 or similar) or some other phone that can have monitor mode enabled (or service menu). It is best if you would be able to slurp the data out of the phone via a cable but spot checks every 5-10 m would be OK (repeat at a minimum of 3 times).
Probably there is a better way but this is the cheapest and fastest way. For more ideas i'd suggest contacting OpenBTS/OpenBSC (as projects for ideas) or Harawd Welte / Dieter Spaar (as persons).
I would not suggest using 4G though (it seems a little bit too spotty and ureliable) if you can get your hands on some MiFi devices it would be better.
Next best option (or even better) would be WiMax (though it depends on availability).
Free Software Activists Take On Google Search
Come on guys YaCy has been around since ages. I remember playing with it in something like 2004-2005. This hardly classifies as something new. Yes it is distributed and yes it is easily influenced. Very easily. Not to mention the java crap it was (at least at the time i played with it).

I really wanna see them trying on this.

Palm Pre Does Not Get US Tethering Either
First of all i am not a layer
Second i work in exactly the telecom env
third i am not in the us but in Europe
so taking all that in mind i still got a suckin idiotik phone that is used only as a phone (it does it's job as a phone) as are most of the people in the telco business (excluding managers). In my personal opinion the moment you can use your phone as a regular Modem you are basically unstoppable. And you know using a modem to connect is nothing new revolutionizing or whatever.
Some people said you are going to draw more bw ... then why they are seling unlimited. If it is unlimited it means UNLIMITED. It does not mater that you are one of the measly 0.5% that uses more than 2 TB a month because you know how and can make good use of it.
Also take in mind the following: As much as i despise the Iphone and similiar stuff for claiming being a phone they really are marketed as a multimedia computing platform ... so phone features are just a bonus not main driver (if you don't know/care/dare to use the other features ... well you need simpler "stick that can talk". Any Goddamn forsaken stupid app that can leach at tremendous rates even being deployed on a "phone" is not a wise move and they've called it upon themselvs so they've got to live with it
Everybody oversells, telcos oversell enormously and of course win enourmously.
End point of the topis is "If i can get to the modem i can and i will use it and nobody can prove otherwise"
PS: excuse my typing mistakes ... it's a bit late and i am up for about 60 hours already ...
