One Canadian's Wireless Neighborhood Network Could Someday Serve Us All

Actually, I learned about this in a long discussion with a bunch of people about an interesting project called '24 weeks' that was presented to me in detail with this blueprint.

The whole thing right now is rife will all kinds of meandering revolutionary jargon interspersed with random bits of technical jargon. I understand what they're after, and I largely agree with it. But, I don't feel that what there is on those pages is enough to try to build anything around.

Edit: 2004/10/02 10:36 PDT: Actually, reading more closely, there is a lot of meat in the whole proposal. But it's kind of scattered around and disorganized. Hmmmmm....

Also, an interesting bit of perspective by someone else who is involved.

They want to use CAKE. I want to work on CAKE. If I can help this vague meandering thing accomplish something and gel into something cohesive that has a chance of making a difference, then so much the better.

A big busy picture that doesn't explain a whole lot except for giving an idea of the energy someone is willing to put into this:

Interesting - thanks, I've posted the original story at baloney.com.

I was kicking ideas like this around a decade ago, when broadband was rare and wireless standards weren't really around. I was concerned with both a network alternative to the consolidating ISP nets, improving effective bandwidth through caching, and with obscuring the endpoints of connections and copying data that might get pulled offline by some government.
