"The term "Wifipicning", a combination of the words WiFi, picnic, and
happening, describes a social gathering of people, similar to the
flashmobs or other social networks born out of new communication
technologies.

Strangers and friends alike gather with their computers which they
connect to a local cordless network situated within a "wifi bubble"
set up by the organizers. With a range of about 30 meters, this bubble
is completely autonomous and does not need a battery operated outlet;
it is not connected to the Internet and can therefore be set up easily
anywhere."

The wifi hubs they are using cost about £30-40.
