Cryonics Community Ideas

What do you think about (computer) networking the entire community? If the
proper provisions were made during the planning phases of residential
construction, future implementation would be less complicated and more
cost-effective, especially considering the potential returns. Using this
backbone, community members would not only have the perks of high speed
Internet connection, (which is becoming an increasingly important
consideration for prospective residents these days - for me, it was my
PRIMARY concern when choosing an apartment :-) ) but one might also be able
to use this as a basis for the implementation of a large-scale
bio-statistics monitoring network, or something of that nature. I'm not
really certain how people would react to this latter idea, but I imagine it
could be done.

Two months ago we implemented a wireless communication link between two
buildings, called a 'microwave ethernet bridge', after my employers acquired
a nearby facility. We also figured out how to bridge the central phone
system over the air using 'addtrans' and 'branch extenders'. The advances
in this field have been truly remarkable. The range capabilities are
expanding all the time (up to several miles, I think, presently). The
combination of fiber-optic cable backbone, perhaps, and portable wireless
solutions, could ensure a highly adaptable (in consideration of potential
growth), stable, and relatively cost-effective, network foundation.
