>>She points to two examples of such quick links: France Data Network and Telecomix News Agency, both which extended their services (albeit dial-up) to Egyptians during the crisis.
So … now that egyptian tyrants have closed down the internet … and mobile phone network … they DEFINATELY won’t shutdown the standard telephone network
I’m sorry, I just can’t understand the logic here.
Centralised networks, either data/voice/internet are a single point of failure network.
When the world gets mesh networks with generator backup, with full public access, and no single owner, then I might believe that we have a fault tolerant / u controllable network.
Good Luck with THAT!
