Its an overlay that can be used also on meshnets or othernets, connecting different nodes given their IP, that is, cjdns.
personally, the internet as it stands is a culmination of human effort, and quite a lot of it. perhaps this is a poor yardstick. I'm not sure how any other large network will work without quite a lot of effort expended, this is simply the way of large projects.
if it were easy we'd have extant alternatives today. its not easy.
meshnetworks can be quite extended with gateways, that a user can use to bridge between one network and another one. To be honest I find this more than adequate. I admit my views on the ideal arrangement of an internet are potentially niche.>>694
I havent read all of these documentations and it seems like there is quite a lot. thank you for finding an less fluffy subselection.
That does not sound, in principal impossible, nor to me entierly stupid, that is no more stupid than any other projects jumping on the blocktrain.
However this does not much speak of physical hardware infrastructure, which makes me assume he remains on the level of all of the other overlay networks, using the internet infrastructure to transport these data.
Ultimately we must admit that the internet is not a software project but also an physical infrastructure project. Sure the software side is neccisary, but its only half of the project.
You cannot lay cross oceanic cables from your office. For now, the hope of a pan global data network without centralization in those governments and corporations with the resources to handle such cables, is quite a fantasy.
