One of my growing interests is technology related to open/decentralized communication. Mesh networks (NYC Mesh), DAT protocol (Beaker Browser), TOR browsing/Chat (Ricochet) SDR communication (Chattervox), and micro wifi networks (Pirate Box)
In practical terms (related specifically to this forum) it is a very exciting way to distribute media (music/schematics/programs), and to reclaim some autonomy over how we communicate and share ideas/data. It would be very interesting to distribute an album, for example, through a piratebox so it could only be listened to if you are local to that WIFI network.
Wondering if any of you have an interest in this or have any links to interesting related projects?
