Grass Roots

Introduction

This is a historic time for broadband investment. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the high costs of being offline. In response, Congress, over the past year, passed two laws—the Consolidated Appropriations Act and the American Rescue Plan—with an unprecedented amount of funding devoted to promoting digital equity. Communities should be engaged now to help craft long-term connectivity goals and ensure that diverse voices are part of the discussion.

We are living in a world of unsatisfied customers and failed mega businesses, which means a multi-trillion-dollar entrepreneurial opportunity if we organize at the grassroots. 

LastMile.Earth establishes innovation centers throughout areas about to go live with broadband internet (not satellite) for the first time. These areas could have exponential growth in global commerce given the proper environment.

At this point we have a MVP that has some success and is scale-able. Execution is the only focus for me – Michael Noel – Waiting patiently on provisions (gas money)

Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that on November 24, USDA will begin accepting applications for up to $1.15 billion in loans and grants to expand the availability of broadband in rural areas. USDA’s Rural Utilities Service is making the funding available through the ReConnect Program and plans to make available up to $200 million in ReConnect Program loans, up to $250 million in loan/grant combinations, up to $350 million in grants with a 25 percent matching requirement, and up to $350 million in grants with no matching requirement for projects in tribal and socially vulnerable communities. RUS encourages applicants to consider projects that will advance the following key priorities:

Making the Uncoverable, coverable

Building out a Wireless Autonomous Massive Network (WAM-NET), with an open edge, mesh network, using where possible open-source components and software (good idea?). 

Scope is as follows

  1. Use Existing Federal Funding to build out a Wireless Network that narrows the digital divide by 40% in 90 days
  2. Operate a private training facility for DLT Testing at velocities of 100 thousand transactions a second or better, things like voting, bonding curves, DNS Server, micro finance (KIVA.org in the US) for the unbanked (MENA), and global e-com, we have simulated these things, but never in a real-time environment where we could push things to see where the wheels come off (or we could just wait and see what happens when we let them in (more entertaining)).
  3. Provide an open edge architecture so other networks can join and participate, such as Adhock Mobile, IOT, or GMN (global mesh network (or we could just build that)). 
  4. Provide training for new users of broadband services, outlining how to stay safe when online, how to use broadband to start a business, how to use broadband to cook, how to use Kahn Acadamy, how to set up a wallet, How to build a mesh network, how to set up a neighborhood Mathnasium, how to build a profitable WISP, how to make hardwood cutting boards and sell them on ebay, how to market the hardwood cutting boards your neighbor just made, how to anything using local people to teach what they just learned (pay them with federal funds) to their neighbors. (learndash pro lms built into MVP already Last Mile Dot Earth)
  5. Unveil the DLT Private Training Facility (Blockchain Sandbox) at the Next GBA Conference: The Future of Money, Governance, and the Law (Washington, DC) January 27, 28, 2022 ahead of Lichtenstein announcing they are planning to start a Blockchain Sandbox (Sputnik).

Insert we choose to go to the moon and do the hard things speech by some good guy who died to soon (can we get Michael Moore?).

Why build one when you can have two at twice the price.

If one team building out is fast, then two teams would be twice as fast? Can we make it Three? (here are 5)

Plans are cheap so here is one that is totally scalable for free, and if you wait here I can go get your change.

Building 3 (more) networks at the same time and then meshing.

1.Sonoran Integrations works with LastMile.Earth to build out specially priced public LTE nodes and connect them to the public backbone, mostly in Rural and Tribal areas. LastMile.Earth provides broadband to places that aren’t profitable for fiber service with a focus on poor and minority areas. LastMile.Earth is developing training to teach people in Arkansas to build public LTE nodes. Eventually some of these people will will use Sonoran Integrations to build out public LTE nodes, eventually these nodes will connect (happened before, spread so fast the CLEC’s outlawed it, Arkansas just decriminalized it).

2 Sonoran Integrations also has an agreement with the Goverment Blockchain Association (GBA) for public LTE nodes. GBA sells public LTE nodes and connects them to the public backbone. This is a profit center for GBA they buy bandwidth form Sonoran Integrations at a deeply discounted rate, and distribute it through mobile routers for IOT and broadband service. The payment gateway for the GBA Modems is GBA Utility tokens (with the help of the University of Arkansas and the center for Blockchain excellence).

3. Sonoran Integrations works with the Government Block chain Association to build out a second PRIVATE LTE network starting at the University of Arkansas, and connecting other universities and collages in Arkansas. This private LTE network becomes the Goverment Blockchain Associations Global Blockchain Sandbox. (SDN they can interact).

4. Sonoran Integrations is working with multiple vendors who could adopt a more open source thinking and join through an open edge. More would join if incentive were offered (gamafied ).(SDN they can interact)

5. A Private Microwave Fixed Wireless long haul will need to be sourced. This could be a Government Sponsored Group for a build out (?), and he can acquire existing infrastructure and re purpose (hologram or helium). (SDN they can interact) using a mesh protocol (consolidation play).

6. A common protocol Mesh network (openairinterface.org) would allow simultaneous diversified build outs and allow for a ghost protocol dns to connect digital assets via public networks (trusted transactions, between adversaries in a trust less environment).

7. A modified version of DJDNS would serve as a private DNS for the Blockchain Sandbox. This Blockchain DNS could provide domain naming services recorded only on blockchain for data sets anywhere in any of the networks it has credentials for. (SDN they can interact)

And that is not 3 networks going together at the same time it’s 5 or 6 networks going together at the same time, and the good news is its SDN they can interact, support IOT, and be self healing (fail over redundancy). I really do wonder just how many interoperable networks (open source) we could start simultaneously, with the help of Michael Moore.

I propose we allow Multiple beowulf clusters clusterd in a beowulf cluster of beowulf clusters on this net, that would allow opensource super computing (ai). (Can we stop it is the question Mr. Musk proposes)

Some Details – First Pass – More Depth second pass (available for Q&A)

The “All we need is One” Just one Kid program. if you show me just one kid, that needs bandwidth to study at home, I believe that there is a good chance he has neighbors that need bandwidth as well. I know that if you have 10 students, that are neighbors, and who get $50.00 a month in Bandwidth allowance you have a break-even company for some smart kid in that community(and free bandwidth for the smart kid). I believe that the same smart kid could expand that company to the point that he or she could support a family (i had a paper route when i was 14, this is easier). 

<start> Digital funnel series All we need is One

If you’re in a technology role in the cable industry, you’re probably aware that cable is undergoing a tectonic shift from “the future is wired” to “the future is wireless.” Wireless means a lot of things to a lot of people. 

In the past, wireless meant Wi-Fi if you were talking to a cable nerd. 

But today, wireless is rapidly shifting to mean mobile, or more specifically 4G LTE and/or 5G. 

For those of you interested in this wireless future, below, I’ll explain how you can build your very own Private LTE network on a budget. 

Scalable Model 1 LTE network with 50% margin

Fictitious senerio lets just make up some numbers for demonstration

This is developed as Broadband access in Rural Areas but anyone can use it (because it is federally funded, you are paying for this anyway). 

GBA or local PTA Organization, local church organization, the kinda places where grass-roots starts sells Mobile Data Sim Cards or mobile data access at very low volume. Think Campus with a Catagory 18 router in a rural area, the Campus has it’s own fungible local cryptocurrency and the router runs on tokens. Campus enjoys recurring revenue. Price varies by location and demand. Higher Demand lower cost, more profit(there is a lot of sweet spot here). 

In a perfect storm, your might be able to sell 1 TB Mobile Bandwidth Data SIM cards from AT&T, Verizon, and T Mobile for as low as $3.00 or $4.50 per Gig (maybe better(and make a profit)), in a perfect storm, your might be able to sell 1 TB Mobile Bandwidth Data from a LTE router for as low as $3.00 or $4.50 per Gig, ad hock network (splash screen hey give me credit card number and get bandwidth(or crypto)) your might be able to sell, well it varies but the potential is truly unlimited (start of a new paradigm).

Once we find a kid we will find a sponsor for the wisp we find a WISP SPONSOR, who could be the PTA, it could be a youth group at a church, it could be a city, town, or it could be an entrepreneuring 15 year old. They have a Credit card. They receive all the income from the WISP, pay the bills, and control the company that built and now controls the WISP. They can hold that business, they can sell that business.

It starts when One Kid is identified and we find a grouping with 20 students in it (simple, logical, repeatable, process (will scale)).

Each household, with $150.00 hardware allowance and $50.00 per month bandwidth allowance. Budget break even at 5 households and at 10 households $500 in recurring revenue. Additional households added at near zero marginal cost. $1,500.00 to build the node and 500.00 recurring cost to support a node (broadband rural money already there got to go get it though).

The end result is a 3 year agreement with Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile, that can be factored, included in a lease, or rented out at 5 Dollars a day on an Ad hock basis by a hundred or so folks on the same day (rural vacation destination).

How much? Just give me an address how much bandwidth what you are applying now, and find out – https://www.sonoranintegrations.com/lead-registration (or just send me your current bill).

This is a scalable model, and they can be connected together to form a Mesh Network. That means you can connect them and share resources. 

If you connected four of these the revenue would be $2,000 a month times 36 is $72,000. One time buy out would be in the 60,000 range for a network like that. You might sell your network to a neighbor for more than that.

It all started when a sponcer found just one student who did not have internet at home. Then went to https://www.sonoranintegrations.com/lead-registration (you have to mention Last Mile Dot Earth for this)

This might have some merit I would believe.

The MVP features a Digital Marketing campaign that would start with 3 k emails a day and a boots on the ground team for local logistics.

We could potentiality do tens of thousands of transactions daily.

I have started a working MVP here https://LastMile.Earth

3. Sonoran Integrations works with the Government Block chain Association to build out a second PRIVATE LTE network (Blockchain Sandbox)

Theoretical DNS packet Obfuscation – Digital Quazi Spread Spectrum Communications

The djbdns software package is a DNS implementation. It was created by Daniel J. Bernstein in response to his frustrations with repeated security holes in the widely used BIND DNS software(ICCAN).

https://sourcegraph.com/github.com/DJDNS/djdns

ETH Denver Hackathon I think it was 2018, we were talking about if you take something and add blockchain to it some people think that it is worth more. Thus Blockchain Walpaper, or Blockchain paper towel, that would actually stay on the roll as you used it, so the first part of the paper towel had part of the stain from the prior one, blockchain paper towels. Till someone mentioned Blockchain DNS, we hacked it in about 36.4 minutes but who is counting(well it was a hackathon so everyone).

Our hack used a DNS repository on GIT called DJDNS which is still on Git,

DJDNS is a DNS server written in Go. It uses the DEJE protocol to host and validate a decentralized registry, which helps us move toward a more secure and distributed internet. https://github.com/DJDNS/djdns

We hacked it so the database was a private chain, and got it working in a ADHOCK network of 4 or 5 laptops (i just coached, these kids program far better than I do). So we added Blockchain DNS to the list with Blockchain Wallpaper, and Blockchain paper towel (hooray).

Over the years, that has developed and I think that a blockchain makes the best databases for anything including and probably more importantly DNS. This could be portable DNS as well (secure sneakerware) where a private chain is generated to identical dongles. Holders of those dongles have unfettered access to private data through public data streams totally obfuscated from anyone else. The blockchain Database could be oracle based and collect information that is published on the private DNS network (remote surveillance using public infrastructure). The blockchain Database could be changed out at regular intervals (Digital Quazi Spread Spectrum Communications). The blockchain Database could be used to archive media which is private behind an Obfuscated DNS in the public domain.

A number of workflows start here.

For instance Network Obfuscation used in a wireless autonomous massive network (WAM- NET), or even a global blockchain association wireless autonomous network (GBANET)

GBANET.SUB 3. (Blockchain Sandbox)

The Global Blockchain Association is competing with Lichtenstein Germany to produce the worlds first blockchain sandbox.

GBANET could be an alternative DNS flavor on any wireless network. A minted GBA utility token could be used to assess that network through a Private LTE network, located at the end of a Private Microwave Network. You can test a lot of things legally If data is not transferred on the public internet (wild wild west(Large data (Hadron) Collider (LDC)).

Portions of that GBA network would be in a private network, those portions, are already, for all intent and purpose, legal to test things in (Blockchain Sandbox) so GBA announces the OPENING of the GBA Blockchain Sandbox, (wireless peer to peer network) ahead of Lichtenstein announcing they are going to start planning some time in the future the worlds first Blockchain Sandbox. Lichtenstein has wires and is oh so twenty twenty one, the GBA’s is the new wireless tech.

How – Start at the University of Arkansas Start by GIVING the University of Arkansas’s Center for Blockchain Excellence a Category 18 Modem and a free 1 TB sim card. Tell them to extend it into the campus so they can use it. Then tell them to add the new GBA utility token so that anyone who uses that network can only use a GBA token. Then give them tokens (heading there now if I could just find some gas money).

Then make them publish the image for that to git

Give the collages around the University of Arkansas and give them tokens as well.

Now launch the sandbox on the network using ALT DNS,

ETA 30 to 60 days coverage, any area in one state probably.

It starts with educational facilities

Why Arkansas? Metropolitan Networks (MAN) have been decriminalized in Arkansas so this would be legal there.

Cost – One guy in the Arkansas Block chain Center could get this done with a couple of modems in a couple of months.

Mesh Open Edge so other networks could establish valid endpoints within other networks.

All open source most off the shelf (some assembly necessary).

gamafied network access – Networks with Millions of Nodes we could just add?

5. A Private Microwave Fixed Wireless long haul will need to be sourced.

6. A common protocol Mesh network (openairinterface.org) What if there were some other networks?

Networks with Millions of Nodes we could just add?

7. A modified version of DJDNS would serve as a private DNS for the Blockchain Sandbox

Theoretical DNS packet Obfuscation – Digital Quazi Spread Spectrum Communications

DJDNS is a DNS server written in Go. It uses the DEJE protocol to host and validate a decentralized registry, which helps us move toward a more secure and distributed internet. I worked with a few folks back in the day working with djddns. The djddns software package is a DNS implementation. It was created by Daniel J. Bernstein in response to his frustrations with repeated security holes in the widely used BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) DNS software (ICANN – Editable DNS).

Interesting thing djdns (open source on github), it can use a blockchain as a database and can make your communications completely private, completely invisible to anyone outside of folks on the same blockchain database (Non-Editable DNS (censorship-resistant).

I got in trouble with it a bit in early 2000’s tweaking a bit with folk’s DNS. The internet was new, so we were trying things back then. I was working with the founding team for GiveClicks. My job was to go through commission junction and every other affiliate org I could find and get Give Clicks approved with thousands of them (apparently something I was not supposed to do, but I did not know that so I did it). We then set up a redirect server that would take target.com (or any other affiliate domain we tracked) traffic from any single computer and redirect it through the affiliate link (yes I know what you are thinking). We tracked the affiliate relationship and we were paid commissions. These commissions were split between Give Clicks and the Charity that was selected for the device 50,50.

Once we had this, we were able to sponsor giving to the March of Dimes, to Make A Wish, and several others (Thank you Paul Fox (RIP my friend and we f#ken miss you brother)). The Donor would download a “browser helper” (hack) from the nonprofit’s Web site, identifying the nonprofit they want to benefit from their online shopping. It took off like wildfire and immediately all the wheels flew off. Apparently, when you change the DNS service on someone’s computer and redirect all of their traffic to use only your DNS server, some people, take umbrage. Some folk (Federal Government) even take it to the NEXT level and make it illegal to do (because they want to do all of that), and call it things like hacking. They do have some nerve, don’t they? So we shuttered Give Clicks.

Then in 2017 while speaking in LA at a huge Blockchain event, I ran into djddns. Interesting thing djdns, it can use a blockchain as a database and can make you invisible to anyone outside of folks on the blockchain database (censorship-resistant).

With all of this FarceBook stuff going on, I wonder if you could create your own private Farcebook, that only you and your friends could see (which is still what a lot of folks still think Farcebook is (less now for sure)).

A private Farcebook, that only you and your friends could see, or your friends at Church, it would be great! Private that only you and your friends could see, BUT, in this case, would you need a private DNS probably not today.

Estimated population without broadband at home in rural areas? 

The Federal Communications Commission says 21 million Americans lack high-speed internet access, but a new report says the actual figure is double that. According to a new report by the company Broadband Now, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission may have underestimated the number of Americans without access to high-speed internet by 20 million people. 

The researchers also found that those undercounts tended to be greater in states with a higher rural population, meaning the rural poor aren’t getting the funding they need to get connected.

Why is this important?

 A more reliable connection translates to better job opportunities for working rural poor, more competition among farmers, and better education for kids. For rural areas to be vibrant, with good remote working jobs and competitive economies, everybody needs access to broadband internet.

Potential Market with better outcomes derived from the tech resulting from a blockchain Sandbox – Global for Generations. 

Some Details

MVP node cost $1,500.00 availability – in stock 

MVP node OS pfsense – Free Download

MVP Monthly recurring cost 0 (it is a profit center and can be profitable day one)

Scalable in Arkansas (Metropolitan Networks have been decriminalized)

Bandwidth for Rural and Tribal Areas – 14 million coverage in 90 days 

Topography 

Nodes are profit centers and have a sponsor. 

Sponsors locate an area with 10 clients who want broadband to the home and do not have it. (Satellite Internet is not broadband).

Sponsors become owners of the network and it becomes an asset as their business. They have P&L responsibility. 

Financing is available for Sponsors

Leasing is available for Sponsors

Factoring of Contracts is available for Sponsors

Training is available for sponsors

Nodes can become part of the Blockchain Sandbox 

Millions of K -12 students are starting to be sent home to home school. There is a concentration of students homeschooling, without the benefit of broadband at the foot of the Apalatichan Mountian Range. This MWANET could provide broadband to more than 14 million students who are homeschooling, now for the second year, with no way to communicate to the world. We are losing an entire generation.
