I just gave a quick demo of Wifidog on a panel called "Open Source /
Open Hardware".

30 people total.

4 people had heard of wifidog.

2 of the people there already had plans to install wifidog on their
network - one from a CWN and one from an advertising supported network
in Europe.

I was on the panel with Sanjit Biswas from MIT Roofnet and
http://meraki.net/ , Richard MacKinnon from Austin City Wireless - who
we met at the Missouri CommunityWireless conference.  Chris DiBona -
open source manager for google - was supposed to be on the panel, but
he only showed up at the end of the panel :-(  It was moderated by
Sascha - from CUWIN.

Sascha brought together the people on the panel to discuss building a
entire open source + hardware turnkey mesh solution that includes
multimedia + local content.  He's told us serveral times over the last
year that Wifidog is an important part of that in his mind.

Also, related news is that CuWIN was just notified this morning that
they received a NSF grant of $500,000.  A portion of that will go into
software development.
