A letter like this distributed amongst the community could create more trouble 
than its worth. Before long you will have action groups against the AP's and 
parabolic antenna's that suddenly appear on peoples skylines. Your nieghbours 
will start complaining that thier kids are in danger of radiation etc...

What is the purpose of the letter? Membership drive?

I think a letter is a good idea, BUT, it would be better to target similar 
user groups, i.e LUV, MelbPC, underwater basketweavers (maybe not), etc, 
rather than Joe down the street who had no idea how to log into Windows, let 
alone setup a wireless link.

> Dear Neighbour,
> Shortly a Sydney Wireless access point will be online in your area.
> Sydney Wireless is a community-oriented group. We are creating an
> inter-connecting wireless network which will allow members of the
> community at large to provide information and the means for free
> communication for others to experience, while making use of new
> technologies at little or no ongoing cost.
> Participants in this are very demographically diverse and utilize the
> network for various reasons, some of which include voice conversations
> (similar in nature to telephone services), game playing, community news
> distribution, and countless other diverse opportunities we hope to
> explore.
> This is all possible due to advances in radio and computer technology
> that allows Sydney Wireless volunteers to link up between homes, all you
> need is a personal computer and the appropriate wireless network
> hardware available off-the-shelf from most computer stores.
> If you are interested in being part of this exciting endeavour or want
> more information we encourage you to visit our web site at
> www.sydneywireless.org or email your local co-ordinator at
