1/ I just published a massive article called "Recovering Our Lost Free Will Online: Tools and Techniques That Are Available Now" https://changelog.complete.org/archives/10231-recovering-our-lost-free-will-online-tools-and-techniques-that-are-available-now
I will summarize some key points in this thread, but please do check out the article.
3/ Recovering free will online
Free our physical and data link layers. You don't have to use Internet from a phone company. Try #LoRA or #XBee radios, or 5GHz point-to-point. Or, heck, NNCP over USB sticks in a car. #Meshtastic is an off-the-grid IM system that does this. What else could you do if you dream big here?
But LoRa is proprietary, isn't it? A bit different from 802.11 family. I can also mention HAM radio solutions using AX.25 and it's derivatives for transport layer. It should handle nncp perfectly
@jgoerzen uh, Never heard of encription restrictions over HAM radio, but I can belive that it may vary from country to country.
I am not into much detailes regarding LoRa, but from search I can see that there are still some concerncs
"The LoRa RF protocol that does the radio transmission, is proprietary to Semtech": https://www.embeddedcomputing.com/technology/open-source/linux-freertos-related/how-open-source-is-the-lorawan-iot-community
@jgoerzen it's free for non commecrcial users right now. But as soon as it's proprietary, the Semtech controlls it and may possibly go against specific use cases.
