RE: a tab for upcoming events on the imeshyou website
just imagine large scale temporary events like Burningman, Coachella, Women’s March on Washington, 2018 Winter Olympics, etc. wouldn’t it be very useful to have a tab for upcoming events on the imeshyou page where you can look up events you plan on attending to see a map of the Mesh network. it can be useful to strategize coverage. at Burningman for example, if i have 2 Mesh devices and i see there is sufficient coverage near my camp i would then loan my other Mesh unit to friends at a different camp where the coverage is weak to fill in the weak spots.
another scenario is if i’m at the Women’s March and see lots of coverage where expect to be marching i would then leave my other Mesh device in my parked car or hotel room blocks away to act as a Stationary Relay Node.
the event maps aid in planning to evenly distribute community coverage.
here’s the unofficial map of this year’s 2017 Burningman layout. the imeshyou map would look exactly like this, but with Stationary Relay Nodes on the map instead of camps.

Firechat, the off-the-grid chat app was initially setup as a way for people to communicate at events like Burningman. Gotenna Mesh could easily become the go-to device for events like this which usually makes them easier to adopt in day-to-day use.
