Hi! I’m Mike Dank from Philadelphia, USA, Earth. I play around with a lot of things including vintage technology/computers, amateur radio, telephony, mesh networking, cyberpunk/hacker history, telecommunications, city network infrastructure, and other weird stuff.

I notably edited and wrote for the NODE Zine. I have also written for or had my writings published in 2600, Neon Dystopia, Exolymph and Lunchmeat.

I have hyperlocal organizational involvement in Philly 2600 (a hacker meetup), Philly Mesh (an experimental mesh networking group), Networks of Philly (for those interested in hidden city infrastructure), and PhilTel (a collective installing free-to-use payphones).
