Do you mean the tute or the site as a whole is a hoax?

Check their FAQ-made me laugh:

F.A.Q.

Q: What does the Neighborhood Network Watch do?

A: The Neighborhood Network Watch, goes out into the community to identify
publicly used networks and to collect samples of network traffic or data
that is being transmitted and received over the network. This data is then
analyzed to see if it contains any terrorist related or threatening network
traffic that maybe endangering both the community and our nation.

Q: What sort of things are in the traffic you collect?

A: Virtually everything being transmitted or received over a network. Most
commonly this includes, emails, instant messages, and web pages that have
been browsed.

Q: Can you really read my emails and instant messages?

A: Absolutely, in fact almost anyone on the same network as you can do the
same thing. In fact we can even reconstruct images transmitted.

Q: Isn’t this invading my privacy?

A: In many ways yes, but in a post 9-11 world the government and most
communities across the United States, believe that these sorts of measures
are necessary to prevent our nation from being attacked by ruthless
terrorists. In fact privacy is a relative term with a definition that is
constantly being redefined. Especially so in the highly technologically
mediated world we live in today.

How To Sniff Network Traffic
Neighborhood Network Watch Home Network Awareness Program

[snip]
Finding a Network
We recommend to start with your own home network and then eventually move
onto those of your neighbors. Eventually you could begin looking at
networks
that are
local to your community, such as cafés, local eateries, libraries, and
parks.
There are many ways you can find a network to monitor if you do not have
one
of
your own or if your ready to move onto monitoring networks other than
your
own. On
the next four pages are four ways and places to find wireless networks
that
maybe
suitable.
[snip]
The Command
The command in figure 1 will be the full command that you will be typing
into your
command line to run TCPDUMP to capture all network traffic from the
network
to a file.
TCPDUMP will collect network traffic that is coming from the following
types
of
applications: email clients, instant message clients, instant relay chat
clients (IRC), file
transfer protocol clients (FTP), and web browsers.

Interesting screenshot about halfway down of what's on the PowerBook.

I need to see a Chiropractor.
I've been shaking my head side-to-side so much lately my cervical
vertebrae
need some help.
