Sorry that I couldn't make the meetup yesterday. I was thinking about our last meeting today and I recalled that Lawrence had mentioned markets and auctions in relation to managing resources on a mesh. I really like this idea. If there are several valuable capacities a mesh offers then it seems like a good idea to have a way to trade capacities (e.g. bandwidth sharing for compute sharing) and to have an exchange rate based on supply and demand. That way if, for instance, the compute resources become overwhelmed the value of a compute resource unit would go up on the market, incentivising people to share more compute units in exchange for, say, storage or bandwidth units. 

I hope you guys had a good meeting. I'm still excited about this idea. Also, there is an upcoming course on coursera.org about software defined networking. I don't think I'll have time to take it but someone else may want to check it out.

This is a book by David Gelertner about his "Mirror Worlds" idea. I think these ideas are a great fit for local mesh networks.

Some of the folks at MIT Media Lab are going to be offering a MOOC about how to go about learning new things in a flexible way.

Interestingly, this course is based on a new open source piece of software known as  the "Mechanical MOOC". Anyone can start a MOOC of their own using this customizable platform!  - (http://goo.gl/MgFmA)
