Serious IOT business going on over at the Contiki blog. What most interests me is low power devices that have a sub gigahertz and 2.4ghz radio.

Big ups to Juice Rap News, always revealing the ridiculosity of our very modern mainstream media (msmbs)

Dog in my turnip flowers the other day. The bees have gotten a GPS lock on my house and love these flowers.

Tried potting some brushless motors today for salt water resistance using tape and toilet bowl wax with west marine epoxy. This is the next trial of Marks motor techniques for OpenROV. The last version used a PVA 3d printed mold. He machined some bushings for me too. Just need to put the motors in a lathe to clean them up, spray the magnets in the motor bell with a protective coating, and I'm good to go. Bring it on ocean!

I bet you are busy with the new gig, but check out this reference to OpenROV at the bottom of my (very preliminary) post here :-) https://github.com/ABISprotocol/ImmortalCode/blob/master/README.md

Share or sell food from your garden to the people around you, or get food from your neighbors. This site makes it easy to monitor local crops and get alerts when they are ready. http://www.ripenear.me/

Hand crafted epoxy coated brushless motors! Last touch-ups today with the brush before going on the robot and in to the sea. Bring it on Monterey Bay salt water.

Nice dream, can it happen??
 
Open Libernet is a Mesh Networking protocol based on Bitcoin that promises to create a completely decentralized, censorship and denial-of-service proof alternative to the internet. "We have completely ignored the problem of internet backward compatibility. Our protocol is designed from the grounds up to live on its completely separated network. This will allow us to utilize a hierarchical routing protocol, while completely disregarding the issue of maintaining an Addressing scheme that is compatible with the internet. But the most important addition to Mesh Networking that Open Libernet brings is the element of Incentive. Our network is built around a robust payment system, modeled after the tried and tested algorithm for the decentralized crypto-currency Bitcoin, to introduce inter-node payments. The concept is simple, the more traffic you help route efficiently, the more traffic you earn for your own consumption. This serves to limit abuse, encourage the community to actively expand and maintain the network, and persuade people to join. The payment system will also make it possible for the network to punish abusers and possibly ostracize them. And naturally, traffic can be earned, transferred, donated or sold, making it a valuable commodity, akin to a currency." Nodes will use cryptographic hashes that look like IPv6 and also act as a payment address for the payment system.
