What’s up today?

Nike coming out with it’s own crypto?


Of course, they just do it.


This is somewhat disappointing,

“Millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum has great potential in terms of speed and capacity, but it doesn’t travel far from the cell site and doesn’t penetrate materials at all,” said T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray on Monday. “It will never materially scale beyond small pockets of 5G hotspots in dense urban environments.”

“We all need to remind ourselves this is not a coverage spectrum,” said Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg a day later.

And why the higher capacity EM radiation “light” will have a more difficult time since it penetrates even less distance than microwave (mm wave) Maybe if we could go to neutrinos since they penetrate virtually every thing. :rofl::sweat_smile::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::thinking:

Even though light can be used by light fittings etc, it is still a short distance carrier. Yes like mm wave you can have long distance links but they require specialised setups with line of sight over that distance. But in urban conditions light is less distance than mm wave. The cost of fitting out light fittings is still way too expensive in the current environment.


Interesting development, biz quitting media:

Announcing the news on Twitter, it said it was “tired of fighting with algorithms” and did not want to “pay to appear” in newsfeeds

This is an interesting development. Just one company but no doubt others and an indication of the SM companies reaching limits in another area. This does indeed suggest there will be an incentive for companies to adopt free, open, decentralising platforms including SAFE, Solid etc. :slight_smile:

They’ll have to learn new techniques, and we can expect some to try to manipulate and control. It’s an interesting opportunity for them and decentralising platforms.


I was fully under the impression that 5G was going to take over from 4G and open endless new possibilities. So this statement that 5G will essentially be hotspots in dense urban environment is a bit of a surprise to me.


I see the following Rust project trending on Github. Could be interesting to some:

Quite a threat. Makes you wonder… what is the reason.

1). Trade war? They are legitimate afraid of the apple empire falling an nothing else? This to me feels most probably the reason, I have a Huawei product… love it.
2) Huawei is legitimate intelligence threat, they will listen to all Comms? (On SAFENet launch this would be irrelevant)
3) consumers using their right to buy cheapest and better goods is removing “backed door” equipment that the US listens to?

So… which is it? Which one of the above has spooked the US?

Interesting from Solid forum:

Particularly this:

In the specific case of sharing private information, it is about a person having ‘the Hohfeldian power’ to grant or decline someone else ‘the Hohfeldian Right’ of use of this persons data. When granted, all the others have “the Hohfeldian duty” to respect this right. An ontology for approval management should reflect this. Actually, I believe that Hohfeld’s concepts could be the base of a global jural infrastructure, including digitalized universal powers, rights and duties of mankind, nature, machines & API’s. Protection of privacy for civilians or freedom of speech, nature’s own proprietary rights, the trading of equity and assets between machines… Well, let’s end this quickly here before I derail the topic too much :stuck_out_tongue:




Hope this gets the go ahead!


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.
