Good points about

city-to-city / other smaller / independent grids.

Cell signals, though, flow through their switches so they in essence control those too. I was thinking of possibly short wave radio grids :), those too can be intercepted, so who knows...

Bitcoins just seem like a fad though, and with the recent huge thefts of bitcoins and looming government crackdowns, I don't have much interest in buying any. I'd be more interested in stocking up on items that can be bartered/sold/store value.
