I'm bumping this thread because I feel the time is coming soon and perhaps there are several new members here who have not read it. I think the information here is useful and as the title says, "A Must Know Piece."

I hope I'm not violating any ATS Terms.

Hopefully some new minds can speak on the subject and get some more ideas. With Obama hiring people specifically to locate any negativity and China looking to buy a large chunk of Facebook, the time is definitely now to know this stuff.

I think this needs to be bumped. These occupy protests are coming to a head, and If I were the government I'd want to squash communication between these groups to end this. If you guys can't go down and protest, I'd suggest you look at other means to help.

just to add, all of you posters that stated they couldn't ever see or believe a situation where the US government shuts down the internet and communications, can you see it perhaps happening in the near future now?

A variation of the dead drop, but with wifi routers connected to publicly accessible file servers. Anybody in the area can connect to it. Some folders may need permissions to upload (to maintain content considered trustworthy by the server operators), but others would be completely public. The completely public content may still need to be screened to keep certain objectionable things or forms of sabotage off the system. (The last thing you want is poisoned data driving people away from using your servers. Maintenance and administration will be necessary.) All content would be publicly downloadable though. The file server would likely be some variation of Linux, since if administered properly it should be fairly secure. That aspect is nothing new though, since that's how most of the web servers are done now.

The second part would be akin to wardriving, but this is how updates of timely information would be passed along between nodes. Vehicles with the right software would drive by or park near the nodes to pass new information and other updates between the nodes. The software would be only to automate the process, so vehicles doing transfers don't need anybody to operate the courier computers. Not quite "IP by carrier pigeon" but much along the same idea.

If wifi nodes are nearby enough to overlap, then an ad-hoc network could be implemented. Some level of information would be exchanged between the file servers.
