Modified Futurama quote:  (Sorry.)

"Oh, no room for us on the internet, huh? Fine! I'll go build my own
internet, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the internet and the
blackjack! Ahh, screw the whole thing!"

I've often wondered what it would be like to get a large area mesh network
setup, the only issue I see is trusting everyone; who would own the final
connection to the net?  What if it goes down and the person is on vacation;
we can't get in to fix it?  How do we connect those that are a little
farther away?   Do we need multiple entry points?

It could end up costing quite a bit, in the long run...
