It's already been proven that a bunch of nerds working together can create a free, functional (sort of) operating system. Imagine a fully wireless computer network built and maintained by hobbyists. An entirely new protocol that transfers encrypted data through clandestine radio relays, satellites, even weather balloons, all deployed by hobbyists and interconnected with one another. Anyone could build and deploy a new node and gain access to the whole network, and potentially provide the same service to anyone else in their vicinity. No more dependence on shitty ISPs, no more SOPA, no more DMCA. All of this is possible right now.

Yes.. in theory.

If the nerd's network doesn't reach common people, it will be just a toy for nerds. Unfortunately that is the most probable future.
Just some clues:
-Encryption exists since long ago, but nobody uses.
-Jabber hasn't replaced msn nor Yahoo.
-Linux, nerd's operating system, hasn't replaced Windows for public.
-Decentralized mail servers have been replaced by gmail, hotmail etc.
-There is an standard VoIP protocol, most people uses skype or msn.
-Google calendar, Google android...

Nerds can do what ever they want, but their inventions will work only in nerd's ghetto. Not a big deal for establishment.

Besides this, nerd's network will use NICs manufactured by companies that could block encrypted communication.

Radio Radio Radio! (Ham radio)

To send html data over the waves is not that unimaginable. I often think about it.
A sender should continuously spam the ether with signal until it get's spammed back to stop sending sh1t

The only thing one should do is to make a radiorcvd and radiosndd daemons and a common infrastructure for interpreting frames as html tags. you could imagine the interpreter as a tree and the frames flowing down a AST tree...

Of course a multitude of ham radios with cheap linuxes & BSDs could build a mighty network of ground relays that would spread thousands of documents 'round
You don't even have to encrypt the shit, who cares what is written in the god damned documents when all the parties have them... let the establishment have the documents... the idea is to send & recv :)

*hic* cheers
