RIPE Atlas probes at hackerspaces
Project: RIPE Atlas probes at hackerspaces, by BECHA
I am a Community Builder for RIPE Atlas and member of Technologia Incognita, Amsterdam Hackerspace -- and a friend of many other hackerspaces (see my other workshop at 29c3: https://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/wiki/Hackerspaces_exchange)
My goal is to have one RIPE Atlas probe installed in every hackerspace -- combining work and pleasure.
I also bring probes with me when I am visiting hackerspaces during Hackerspaces_tour
How to apply
If you want a RIPE Atlas probe:
* go to access.ripe.net -> create a "user account" (unless you already have one) * log in - go to atlas.ripe.net/apply * fill in the details and in "method of delivery" say _ship it to me_ * ... and we'll ship it to you... * once you plug it in (mark it to be "public") * please let me know when you have one working, so that i can add it to my list of probes-at-hackerspaces...

Instructions: you can add this to a hackerspace by editing it with a form and select at the bottom the equipment "RIPE Atlas".

What is RIPE Atlas
RIPE Atlas https://atlas.ripe.net is a measurements network consisting of 3000+ HW probes that send pings, traceroutes, DNS queries etc either to fixed targets (root name servers) or do customized measurements by the people who are hosting the probes. Data is made available to everyone, in form of maps and raw data.
why should you want a probe
Probe hosts can get more details about their own measurements, earn "credits" for volunteering their bandwidth & electricity, and spend credits on customized measurements.
