I know there's another thread about the raspberry pi and mesh networking.... Starting new one to discuss possibilities.

i think NXT has an interesting twist that I haven't seen discussed much yet...

Mesh Networking... or Decentralized Internet.

Nxt has all the ingredients of facilitating and kickstarting the decentralized mesh internet movement:

- DNS Routing and Domain Name System - CHECK
- Messaging / Email - CHECK
- Currency - CHECK
- Decentralized Marketplace - CHECK
- Decentralized File Storage - CHECK

Currently outside of nxt, there are certain coins that implement each of these systems. But none of them is in one integrated system, which means namecoin would have to work with storj for file storage and florincoin for messaging. We can see each dev team would have to really collaborate together under one roof, and also the fact that each coin has its own separate currency which would cause fragmentation among devs hindering development time just like how we see the bickering over 20mb blocks on btc.

Once someone integrates CJDNS with nxt alias and packages it into a small affordable form factor like a raspberrypi or chromecast. This can really stir things up if everyone hopped onto this decentralized network. Imagine distributing these small devices to small villages or city areas with low internet connectivity. Or even possibly replicate what Google is doing with the Loon project (http://www.google.com/loon/) with a NXT server on a constant floating balloon powered via solar energy.

I was reading about Freenet yesterday. I don't know a huge amount about it, but it struck me that it would be possible to create something very similar on Nxt with a minimum of work. It seems to me that the blockchain/Nxt network is effectively already a meshnet of sorts. A basic version might involve nothing more complicated than uploading a page of html to the blockchain and then viewing it in another browser window while the client was running (via a plugin or similar that extracted the html from the tx in the URL).

I know slothbag has done some stuff with Hyperboria and Nxt, too.

Not blockchain based, but still decentralized Search Engine: http://yacy.net/en/index.html

Playing with some stuff here: https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/decentralised-web-on-nxt-blockchain/

Very, very simple. I'd love someone to develop this further.

If you guys have more ideas about what else can be included in SuperMesh Project, please suggest on thread: https://nxtforum.org/nxtservices-releases/spacemesh-org-and-supermesh-io-asset/

Cheers,
