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-Decentralized mail servers have been replaced by gmail, hotmail etc.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.
