[Yasmin_discussions] networking 5.0

summary
artists-scientists recontextualizing sound: prehistoric signal/sound
imaging analogs to digital; I/O fibre sensors, HD video/XBee wireless
RenW/XBee antennas RF/Arduino ZigBee mesh modules/long-range tests/faster
I/O re Leonardo 5.0 Networking

Being physically incapable of fulfilling the initiative and proposal
advocated here *; however, as catalyst, I'm capable of responding to any
ideas re conceptualizing beyond the basic wireless mesh network and look
toward to expanded link-ups with faster two-way networking potentials.
grass roots Global broadcasts circulating via .edu Universities, Art Sound
Departments and Schools of Sound identifying and seeking student
participation. These personalized school newspaper sound-study ads could
segue artists-scientists.

I'd like to suggest a startup series of conferencing "free" app Skype calls
seeking people personally motivated and would offering their summing
comments, re an exploration beyond the 2012 ubiquitous reaches of emerging
nano technologies; inviting those, who would like to share their
perspectives, concepts regarding sound, following through research devoted
to an ongoing realtime acquisition of analog to digital terrestrial
waveforms, including the sharing of conclusions and the fine tuning of
individual contributions.

Who is leading whom? The lazy susan method acknowledges sequencing for
persons whose updated thinking would, at the present time, be relevant to
all participants re the cross-referenced consensus of fluxed objective
wholes. Weekly free Skype progress conference calls could sustain a
feedback/feedforward and monitoring process.

In particular, the intended focus would require local community
citizen-scientists to contribute synchronized timings individually, and
together, with the analog data collated from the quad-sensing of all audio
and (eventual) video data streams, would have final outputs fed into
mesh+nodes via the basic IEEE 802 or IEEE 802.11s standard. This allows
laptops to ZigBeeRF connect and to share this output with future faster,
expanded global networks. An upgrade provision would eventually phase in
the video aspect added to the sound streams, employing helium balloons and
cameras to relay realtime high resolution imaging to any solar-ready ground
meshnet- and beyond. These could include wave relay meshnet options from
node to node on 5.2 GHz or 5.8 GHz.
