MysticWicks endorsement: "I've always, always regarded the Discordians as being people who chose to be Discordians because they can't be arsed to actually do any work to develop a relationship with a specific deity, they were too wishy-washy to choose just one path, and they just want to be a mishmash of everything and not have to work at learning about rituals or traditions or any such thing as that."

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?


I am not "full of hate" as if I were some passive container. I am a generator of hate, and my rage is a renewable resource, like sunshine.

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?
