Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know enough about these wireless networks that individuals can set up, but I imagine for some quids and with a bit of knowhow (and I always have found people who know A LOT about computers who tend to be anti-authoritarian--it's a club, and you can only join if you ask the right questions [c.f. spybot--Search & Destroy, offered to me by one of the many who know about computers here at ET--thanks TBG!])...sorta like walking out of "Windows world"--and everything is...different.

I have this sense that we're right in the middle (or at the beginning) of an evolutionary step, where the "bad people" have their hands on the old levers, cos they have the time, the inclination, and the narrow focus, they have accumulated enough money to win all their fights, sooner or later--money as a magnet--like gravity, it's cumulative--sucks people and objects in.

"fighting this war as if it were the last war"--where "this war" is a war on...greed and selfishness, I think.  So generosity--the sharing of what we have, including our abilities to protect each other...ach...I've typed lossa words but feel very...mucho difficulty in my expression of ideas.

Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.
