Looking at MaidSafe and Indie phone and advances in interference leveraging tech like P Cell, it seems that we will now get into a Space race of sorts over an open consumer phone platform that will replace the internet outright. I know the knee jerk may be that phones are not a replacement for data centers and its good for big business to have that opinion. But soon big business will be trying to cram white space and pushing its spectrum licenses and trying to claim patent infringement and pushing even more radical SOPA type legislation. Also trying to make the same kind of bribe based ROE arguments against open that it does against municiple.
The big centralized internet cloud will be disipated by the wings of this swarm.
