William Gibson and Neuromancer: the man who saw tomorrow — Neuromancer, 30 years old this month, leapt into cyberspace almost before it existed | Books | The Guardian - http://www.theguardian.com/books...
“Prescience can be tedious for science-fiction writers. Being proven right about a piece of technology or a trend distracts from the main aim of the work: to show us how we live now. William Gibson knows this as well as anyone. Since the late 70s, the American-born novelist has been pulling at the loose threads of our culture to imagine what will come out. He has been right about a great deal, but mainly about the shape of the internet and how it filters down to the lowest strata of society.” • #прокниги#gibsonesque - × × ×

The World's Best Bounty Hunter Is 4-Foot-11. Here's How She Hunts | Threat Level | Wired.com - http://www.wired.com/threatl...
"At 4'11" and just over 100 pounds, Michelle Gomez doesn’t look like the sort of person you’d hire to retrieve earthmoving equipment stolen by a Peruvian crime family. But in the summer of 2013, that’s exactly what she was doing." • #конкультура - × × ×

The internet mystery that has the world baffled — Cicada 3301 online mystery enthralls codebreakers around the world - http://www.montrealgazette.com/technol...
“One evening in January last year, Joel Eriksson, a 34-year-old computer analyst from Uppsala, Sweden, was trawling the web, looking for distraction, when he came across a message on an Internet forum. The message was in stark white type, against a black background. “Hello,” it said. “We are looking for highly intelligent individuals. To find them, we have devised a test. There is a message hidden in this image. Find it, and it will lead you on the road to finding us. We look forward to meeting the few that will make it all the way through. Good luck.” • #gibsonesque - × × ×
Rhizome | Occupy.here: A tiny, self-contained darknet - http://rhizome.org/editori...
“Occupy.here began two years ago as an experiment for the encampment at Zuccotti Park. It was a wifi router hacked to run OpenWrt Linux (an operating system mostly used for computer networking) and a small "captive portal" website. When users joined the wifi network and attempted to load any URL, they were redirected to http://occupy.here. The web software offered up a simple BBS-style message board providing its users with a space to share messages and files.” • #крипта - × × ×

“Since then Occupy.here has become my zen garden, a tiny self-contained internet I've been developing slowly and methodically.” - × × ×
“In this second, decentralized phase, I've seen a modest volume of use by internet standards, perhaps a handful of posts per week. There are patterns in how it gets used according to where the router is situated. The Zuccotti Park router was a popular venue for middle-aged men to upload selfies. Another one, hidden in the lobby of the Museum of Modern Art (installed without permission), mostly receives multi-lingual variations on "hello world" or "why doesn't the wifi work?" A handful of users have written more substantially, but it amounts to a message in a bottle, floating in the 2.4 Ghz spectrum.” - × × ×
Судя по фотке, в этой прошивке нужно два wifi интерфейса. Недавно как раз почитал проект радиолюбительского меша (http://hsmm-mesh.org/) состоящего из стандартных рутеров. Радиолюбительский он потому, что каналы 1-6 wifi находятся внутри разрешенной радиолюбителям полосы частот, а радиолюбители могут излучать в десятки раз большей мощностью, чем потребительские рутеры. Это драматически увеличивает покрытие меша при том же количестве нод. - Что-то равно чему-то.
