Neighborhood networking maybe?

I am surprised how people get happy about this,without evaluating the consequences. because of their personal preference and and giving squat about the entire internet community.

Don't let a troll hijack the thread, the topic isn't about controlling the internet, it's about throwing out the data centers & need for cloud services, where one can run a massive file server from a itty bitty little Wall Plug In Server which cost all of $99 (Or less in the future possibly) & $1.50 a month to power & run with electricity 24/7!

That's the topic guys, please, post about the uses of these little gadgets, that's worth discussing, and not political views on how to control the internet or what is best for the masses...

I think the most extravagant thing about what these little boxes represent is..

1) Cheap To buy & Use!
2) Various Viable Usages (Can we think of more?)
3) Dropping the reliance of the Cloud...
4) Off site Backup from anywhere = A HUGE Benefit to all!

My mind is just swirling with ideas, but if we let a troll kill the thread this won't get the publicity it direly needs to make it viable competition to the current Internet Services Available & also it wont become more affordable, which would be bad on all accounts... (Ignore Trolls seeking to hijack threads, thanks)

I have a hard time seriously believing anything Eben Moglen is saying in his quotes. To me this just seems like another attempt for Stallman and his fanatics to soapbox yet again about how awful the current computing landscape is.

The product is interesting. The FSF's touting it as the salvation of the internet is not.

Agreed, opinions out, new tech in...

Let me put this all in perspective for you guys and give you a glance at the future here...... Are you ready????



Micro Technology today....

True Mobile Gaming...


Excellent User Interface Touch Pad Technology


Affordable Multimedia Mobile Phones


Meets a $99 Data Center Accessible from anywhere around the world!!!


Essentially we already have great mobile computers, but rather than pay for services or fees for access, simply turn a $99 Data Server into all those cool websites you would normally go to access Media! Without the need for huge storage mediums in Mobile Devices, now, as in today, Mobile computing is more or less dominating the world...

I see it everywhere I go, Micro Mobile Technology is in...

Now imagine sharing all of your media with friends? NO PROBLEM...

Need to show something off at work?

Your office on the go = True Love!

============================================

Essentially the original author was trying to free people's mind to see that the reliance on many Internet technologies & servers could be greatly reduced if people were to simply create their own Server.... For $99 who can argue that it's not feasible? Access your media & live security cameras anywhere, access your entire home or business network, or whatever, all from one web page, wow... That's like wow...

Granted it may take you some time to build a 2-16 TB Data center full of media, and it may be rather costly too, but there are many people out there who may be willing to pool/share media if everyone was allowed access to that data... (Or one could simply becomes a Media Site incarnate..)

One True Media?? No no no, join my network, we got everything and it only cost.... (See where this is going?)

You have no idea what you are talking about. You can't control terrorism or crime. We haven't been able to since the first Sumerians started to write stuff down and we never will be able to.

But we can create police states/orginizations, which basically makes everyone unhappy criminal or not. You sound like you really thought that through.

not a bad article, but the rant against windows in the speech excert was pretty bad. Windows is responsible for the client/server model?

I think your missing some of his finer points....

He is talking about how the government in Egypt shut down the internet, and the people were unable to communicate via the internet...
He is also talking about the reliance on Big Businesses to do what you want to do..

Sometimes the term refers only to the organization's internal website, but may be a more extensive part of the organization's information technology infrastructure. It may host multiple private websites and constitute an important component and focal point of internal communication and collaboration.

In contrast, business-to-consumer (B2C) models involve known servers of one or more companies, communicating with previously unknown consumer users. An extranet is like a DMZ in that it provides access to needed services for channel partners, without granting access to an organization's entire network.
Hopefully others can understand the power of what this guy is trying to hand people, self empowerment, freedom, and everything we want most, privacy....

Ultimately one fine point to be made is, Internet users don't want to be controlled by Governments / Forum Moderators / or anyone else, they want to share with everyone their views, opinions, thoughts, and other things, without fear of retaliation or criminal prosecution... The problem is outside forces don't want this... It doesn't take anything more than a few months on the internet to understand what's really going on...

Can you say free trade or Open Market? This is essentially what everyone wants... eCommerce would be great if everyone could have their own eBay or craigslist locally...

The ideas this guy presents are almost limitless, provocative, innovative, and could effect the world in a positive way!

The only thing hindering this new world is people's intelligence & ability to be creative or imaginative...
