It's the idea that matters and it has already been unleashed. Central banking is the bane of everyone's existence whether they realise it or not. Cryptocurrencies will turn central banking literally upside down and with that, a redistribution of economic power. The Chinese can't believe their fortune. The enemy has embraced the technology that will dissolve the very ground he stands on!

Average global temperatures are up 4c in the last century, 2c in the last decade, and it is more severe near the poles. Coastal water levels have risen by a few inches in the last decade.

OK lets go from the top. You took the floor so I kindly ask that you give references for the stated data. Lets be civil geeks.

Average temperatures have fallen marginally in the last decade, so you're misinformed there (see the actual satellite data at Cryosphere Today, not CNN) .Average temperatures were quite a bit warmer and changed more dramatically in the middle ages. Greenland was not named sarcastically. Britain once produced wine. Find the connection between politics, power tax and lies. In short: get your brain out of your arse :]

BitCoin is a medium of exchange like any other money before it, from feathers to paper backed by military force (US dollar). The fact that fiat currencies can be printed willy-nilly without the discipline of anything to back it with (ie gold / silver) is the direct cause of all the evil in the world today. The Cabal in charge of the printing press manipulates the entire physical paradigm of existence and eventually destroys it. "Permit me to issue and control the money of the nation and I care not who makes its laws. — Mayer Amsched Rothchild", 1800's. I hear idiots talking about Ponzi schemes, bubbles etc, and don't have a clue about the fundamentals of money. it's a MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE. Like any other medium of exchange, criminals can build ponzi schemes ontop, markets can get excited about it and create bubbles, like anything else. Money is a store of value, period. The difference here is that the value of it, vis-a-vis how much stuff you can but with a unit of it, is determined by far more parties than has ever been possible. This is the proper market democratisation of trust in the unit. The US dollar currently is run by a tiny private Cabal inbreds. For the love of Christ, learn about and understand money in history first, the role of Gold and Silver for 5000 years, the attempts by Government to eradicate Gold & Silver so they can print money and fund wars etc etc, then comment.

The Illuminists risk sparking a communications revolution post-internet by taking draconian measures like this.

Massively Distributed WIFI is where this is going, and we need to accelerate thinking in this direction. It cannot be intended for mainstay use, but as a mitigation to tyranny.

Another option is blue-tooth (100M Class A) distributed database core (eg CouchDB) with lightweight web server and subscription / security layer. People would be able to 'swarm' to update their subscriptions, and identify where physically the latest updates are, and become human routers.
