So I wandered across this subreddit recently: reddit.com/r/darknet.

They seem to be opting to turn their own computers into nodes for a new internet. It's not as futuristically cool as doing it with jewellery, but probably more immediately practical? They're proposing to use something called cjdns to do this, but I don't know anything about its security or practicality.

No they're just talking about it a lot, hoping someone will make it. Unfortunately, the part where it helps if a large crowd of people all do their little bit to make it better (the crowd-sourcing stuff Reddit is good at), doesn't happen before a bunch of really smart people solve the routing problems.

Although, I haven't seen them simply try and fail yet either. Then again, that might be for the best because it won't do the public opinion of such a project much good when they finally get all their friends to install some app or whatever to get a sizeable "municipal area network" going, and then it turns out network congestion kills all the performance.

Trip, what do you think of BATMAN and the other protocols attacking this problem?

When I lived in the university dorms we used to have WASTE set up for sharing files on the network. I seem to remember it being pretty decent at giving decent connection speeds.
It's not trolling, it's just satire.

Is it  a practical solution to where this thread is going?

Well, it worked well on a small scale (~250 computers), but I don't know if it will scale up. Perhaps someone with more knowledge on network systems can help?
