The Glorious Agorist Future Likely Will Be Peer-to-Peer #gloriousagoristfuture #bitcoin #p2p #mesh #networking

Picture from openlibernet.org. I’ve come across a very interesting project when it comes to mesh (aka p2p) networking. The OpenLibernet Project aims to combine mesh networking with some of the ideas behind the Bitcoin protocol. The problem with mesh networking – especially insofar as concerned with building a new more secure internet – is that […]

Movie Review: Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World is the second standalone Thor movie, and a continuance in the Marvel Universe of movies. Unlike Iron Man in Iron Man 3 (which was terrible) Thor does not suffer from the inability to stand on his own. A post-Avengers Iron Man movie has everyone wondering why Iron Man doesn’t call SHIELD […]

The entrance to the Harry Potter World studio tour. My wife and I were given two tickets for Harry Potter World here in the UK. While it was difficult to get a booking, we were lucky two weekends ago that there was a cancellation and we were able to go on Saturday at 4pm. It’s […]
