There is something interesting about a close range network. 1 Rather than collecting trillions of data points and then distributing crumbs to the users who notify Big Brother their position asking: Sorry, can I know what is in my vicinity? Why can’t everybody search where they are? Dig where they stand? Without surveillance. Energy efficient. It would benefit local and physical climate-compatible contacts and activities.
A network that prioritizes physical proximity through design. For example, device-to-device networks (d2d) where devices connect directly to each other without other infrastructure.↩︎
