We propose to study a novel approach for Ad-Hoc WiFi based distribution of information, usable in large crowds of mobile users. We follow a basic opportunistic networking approach by making use of the smartphones’ built-in WiFi hotspot functionality which in combination with the devices’ switching between access point and client modes can facilitate the propagation of messages. In this position paper we outline three contributions with respect to previous work on the topic.
