Sensors of the World, Unite!
: Good intro to this topic, quoting an Alun Anderson Economist article, and providing other references. "Another information revolution is emerging, driven by billions of tiny and intelligent sensors able to self-organize into scalable and fault-tolerant networks. Taken individually, these sensors have small brains, but using billions of them is an entirely other story." 10:53:57 PM
Wireless Networks as a Low-Cost, Decentralized Alternative for the Developing World
: "Krag's presentation describes the Wireless Roadshow
plan: "By teaching the skills with hands-on training, and at the same time building wireless networks in the countries we visit, we hope not only to raise awareness and heighten skillsets, but also gain the experience necessary to build a central repository of documentation and tools, targeted specifically at the developing world." Tomas Krag and Sebastian Büettrich wrote an O'Reilly introduction to Wireless Mesh Networking . 10:39:08 PM
