At the conference, someone suggested that EduGeek have a central resource of hardware for rent. The MetaGeek Wi-Spy was used as an example.
How about a network of members willing to rent out hardware to each other in their locality, advertised through EduGeek? This would save EduGeek from having to invest in hardware for rental.
I do have a Wi-Spy if anyone's interested, and I'm looking for a cat6 cable tester.
