Have You Been CON’d Yet?

Most of you are aware, or are coming to an awareness, that you have been conned or duped by globalists now controlling our money, our media, and our military.  You don’t have to watch movies like “Inside Job” nor read books like Michael Lewis’ “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine” to come to the realization that pathocracy is currently prevailing.  Evidence is compounding at a staggering rate through the Internet, through social media networking, through a common concern of the conscientious.   There are initiatives to control and thwart this flow of information, this freedom of information.  Take heart, there is a ground swell occurring uniting good people of conscience through community endeavors.  We all know the difference between right and wrong and it is up to all of us to act accordingly.  There are even nations now, like Iceland, acting accordingly.  There is the Occupy Movement which should be more of a worldwide tar and feather campaign supported by local enforcement.  To do nothing is being just as guilty as those unconscionable perpetrators.

Please be patient with me as I give you a little more perspective to ultimately and hopefully guide you in your community endeavors.

At one point in time here in Maple Valley, Washington, we owned and managed a community network and presented to our community an opportunity to take over the network so as to concentrate on our core business, community broadband architects.  You can only bang your head against the wall for so long and unfortunately the city’s shortsightedness and other factions led to us selling off the customer base so we could move on.  I mention this as I don’t recall having any network outages of any significance and we were always quite responsive to local customers and those applications that we hosted, albeit basic ones like e-mail and websites, were always accessible to both local citizens and businesses.

Recently we had an extremely rare ice storm which knocked out power lines and the Internet as well, while making roads and even walking hazardous due to falling branches and slippery conditions.  Some of my neighbors are almost a week without power as I can hear the steady drone of their generators.  The storm accentuated the need for emergency preparedness and not just for disasters especially with communications to coordinate activities.  Fortunately, we have a power substation across the street providing power to a major cell tower on our property so the chances of loosing power are somewhat lessened.  We also have HAM licenses and even a HAM repeater on the premises.

Communities need to own and operate the own open access networks.  When I say community I’m not referring to local government and the associated bureaucracy which seemingly gets out of control and becomes unwieldly and costly.  I’m talking about the citizens, all local citizens, and fostering mutual respect through community regardless of race, religion, creed, or political beliefs.  How best to do that is open for discussion; but of course I’m an advocate of cooperacy and creating a community development cooperative to facilitate not just local business’ and residents’ voice, video, data and mobility requirements but more importantly have this same technology positioned in such a way to facilitate emergency communications. 

Most communities have identified the basic last-mile technologies:

  • DSL
  • Cable
  • Fiber
  • Wireless
    • 2.4 GHz (unlicensed)
    • 5.8 GHz (unlicensed)
    • 900 MHz (unlicensed)
    • 700 MHz (licensed)
    • 3G (licensed)
    • 4G (licensed)

There are other technologies such as satellite communications, other wireless spectrum, broadband over power lines and hybrid combinations as well.  More critical to a community than infrastructure is applications, local applications that serve the community’s needs.

For instance, imagine sitting in a local restaurant having a meal with your family.  In front of you on the wall is a digital television displaying local news with local business advertisements.  Remember you came to this restaurant as you were browsing the local community portal on your smart phone while grocery shopping.  As usual when you don’t eat before going to the grocery store you get hungry and today there are no free samples to indulge upon to stymie those hunger pangs.  While browsing on your smart phone the grocery store’s sale items you notice on the store’s digital signage an advertisement for a discount coupon at a nearby restaurant enticing you.   Things were slow for whatever reason and the restaurateur had decided to offer a free appetizer for the next two hours.   So here you are sitting in the restaurant gazing at some of daily menu specials also being displayed on the restaurant’s digital signage.  Almost simultaneously you receive an amber alert on your phone while information is also being displayed city-wide on the community’s networked digital signage in local restaurants, grocery stores, community center, schools, institutions, businesses, etc.  Local video and radio broadcasting is being interrupted with the latest news on the amber alert.  The community is now alerted and communicating and watchful.

Cloud computing certainly has some advantages but when cloud applications are inaccessible to the community they are useless as you no longer have any control.  Community cloud computing applications serve the community best by utilizing local resources.  The technology exists and community preparedness can be initiated through cooperacy.

A Community Owned Network is the only way to feel great about being CON’d.
