Does your area have a meshnet?Submitted by TelFiRE on Sat, 09/07/2013 - 22:39
Hey guys. I searched "meshnet" and it doesn't look like it's been talked about since last October. Kind of surprised me on a place like this. I don't know a whole lot about it, as I just found out about it.
The meshnet is an underground rebuild of the Internet. It works basically the same way, you group your area to a central server (or multiple servers) and those servers run something called "cjdns" and connect out to all the other central hub servers in different areas. You can email and make websites, basically same deal, just without all the government backdoors.
I think it's a great idea. Take away the central control of the Internet! Then it will truly be in the hands of the people. In my area, people have tried to start it a couple times but it hasn't gained a huge amount of momentum. Maybe it just needs more DPers involved.

So, does your area have a meshnet? If not you should consider helping in the effort to get one started. We may not have much time!
