Perhaps we could start a new myth!

The OLPC hardware has the possibility to make a mesh network. Can we
do the same? Can we build a mobile Internet, perhaps using store and
forward? Since the Internet is being broken down, we need a new one.

Once upon a time, there were BBS-es that created networks using
store-and-forward (anyone recall the name?). Also, 27Mc networks were
built using the same techniques. We should do the same using BT and
WiFi! F*ck the Mafiaa!
