Meshing the future
I’ve been reading an advance copy of a DEMOS paper, “The Politics of Bandwidth”, and pondering the phenomenon of disruptive technologies. For me, WiFi (or 802.11b networking) is a classic example. But its true disruptive potential has yet to be revealed — which is why mesh networking is so interesting. The neatest thing about the mesh idea is that the more devices there are, the better the service gets. Much better than 3G.
