Personal Telco Project - Oregon

The Personal Telco Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Portland, Oregon dedicated to the idea that users have a central role in how their communications networks are operated.

"We are a volunteer group of Portlanders who believe that 802.11 (wireless networking, or Wi-Fi) technology is both cool and empowering. "

Personal Telco Project - Oregon

"We started, in 2000, by turning our own houses and apartments into wireless hotspots (also referred to as "nodes"), and then set about building these nodes in public locations such as parks and coffee shops. Currently we have over 100 active nodes, and we eventually would like to cover the entire city of Portland, Oregon with even more."

Cloud Computing the Cerebral Six Pack

Grid computing among servers is fine. But the concept of networking unused computers and using that for crunching large numbers is not practical. This is mainly because it is not green (power consumption). Such ideas are not economical for the purpose served. Not Sustainable.
Cloud Computing the Cerebral Six Pack

What we need is like a Class AB Audio Amplifier. Deliver Power on demand, or scale up/down (hardware switching) on demand, efficiently. This is only possible in client-server systems. Cloud Computing is the way. The clients are Low Power Multi-Media Terminals. The Modules in the Servers can turn on, as demand increases, as more people login or compute more.

e-Gram - Secure and Green Communications

When we send a snail mail or receive them, there is not much of spam involved. This is because of the cost of the postage stamp and cover. Even then some unwanted snail mail may come in rarely.

e-Gram - Secure and Green Communications

 The cost of sending an e-mail should fall on the sender, not the receiver or the mail transport system. A way - more like 100 free sending per day, above that nominal charges. This may not work well as most of this spam is sent unconventionally. If routers and servers get smart, they can block spam, then it may be like charging a Toll on the Data Highway. That may choke the net for normal users.

Iridium Reuse - Y2K Fables

The www is always hungry for more, the present infrastructure of iridium could be used to enhance performance of www, it may not make profits but it will sure help in the maintenance and coordination of servers and speed up the web which may benefit all in general.


Iridium Reuse

I heard that iridium satellites may be brought down. It must be fun putting it up on the first place and then bringing it down, electronic stuff will on their own stop after some time, so why bring it down, and when it is still up there in the sky why not use it for some other purpose than intended, that way you can save the cost of bringing it down !

Software becomes Hardware or Cloud OS

What if Operating-System OS Software was a Hardware data like a Gramophone Plate or CDROM. Let us assume the OS is given on a ROM Cartridge. Updates are mailed as New Replaceable Plugin Cartridges. Just Plug out Old OS and Plugin New.

Linux Cloud Distro - Tux in the Cloud.

Then where is the Term "Security Issues". It becomes Obsolete, Antiquated for the rest of this Creative Life Cycle of Planet Earth.

Biotech Nanotech and 12G

Convergence Of Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and 12-G Mobile Cellphoney. (this is a work of pure tech fiction by delabs written around the year 2000)

This post was first put in a blog powered by pMachine in 2001 or earlier, may have given the inspiration for the Android Brand.

This is a revolution of sorts. The final triumph of man over nature. The solution to the globalization standoff.
