Here are some things I'd be interested in learning/skill sharing/playing with:

* temporary internet connectivity via 3G or other means
* mechanisms for sending video/digital images from cut off places
  2.4 ghz AV senders | wifi NAS | 3G uplink
* live video streaming via 3G mobile phone
* social media and it's implications, applications and uses
* clever and useful things to do with twitter and sms generally
* mobile publishing gateways to alt media platforms and others
* VoIP Asterisk etc and neat things to do with ordinary phones
* Geeks and activism - how to improve communication and understanding

(there is quite a bit of overlap there)
