Is this the collab with university and Scotland that MaidSafe was referring to earlier for further funding to the SAFE Network? If so certainly looking forward to results, I wonder… I should not say it …, but what the timeline on these applications are before approval/rejection :laughing: ? Because I have literally no idea if its weeks/months or wat.

This is all about squashing superior competition. The fact is, I’d rather have a Chinese network than a US created one (nicely back-doored to US intelligence agencies).

I can’t see the Chinese as having any particular reason to worry about my communications and even less reason to do anything about it. Now, the US and its war-mongering anti-freedom deep state is another matter entirely!

Maybe the right way to think about these high-density connections isn’t as means for uninterrupted communication. Hardly ever will we need such high bandwidth continuously and the rare times when we would are likely to coincide with the times when we wouldn’t want to move around much anyway (that 4K 3D VR experience is best/safest enjoyed while sitting still with a coffee, right?)

We’ll still have our stable connections at the longer “classic” wavelengths like today and, just like we can carry around a bottle of water and fill it up at a fountain occasionally, our devices will similarly grab a half second of 5G awesomeness to get the next 5-10 minutes of data whenever they catch a glimpse of those mm or shorter waves.

Facebook is a private platform with all the right to decide who it does or does not give a voice. I welcome this particular decision as those people used their popularity to spread misinformation and hatred.

At the same time, if we had (purely theoretically :wink: ) a platform where such misinformation not only could not but also would not need to be silenced by some arbitrary authority because every piece of information could be followed back to a primary source (such as an eyewitness) through a trusted chain of real-life relationships (Solid?), I admit that would be a much better solution.

“Be as Good as Your Word” is a pop song featuring young Chinese celebrities who sing about the importance of being ‘trustworthy.’ The new music video is part of a bigger initiative propagating China’s Social Credit System among the younger generation.

Eeek. Charlie Brooker must be having a hell of a job keeping his dystopian satire ahead of reality :grimacing:

Intuitively it makes sense. I’m guessing most phonetime is spent on social media. Social media makes money by monopolising our attention, and the best way to do that, they’ve found, is to keep us angry and stressed.
