    Iridium is broke and they are planning on de-orbiting the 66 sattelites.
    An open source project has formed to investigate buying them and creating
    the world's first open source public network.


    There is a survey and they are looking for volunteers, ideas, and
    feedback. The project seems impossible but you've got to give'em props for
    having lofty dreams.
