Decentralized clustering

Herr Urbach

In January 2011 the fear of all internauts became bitter truth. A whole country was kill-switched by the government. The flow of data was interrupted, communication laid waste. Not only the Internets was taken down, other means of communication were interrupted too. Cell Phone providers took down their services. So, there was no Internets in Egypt. Internauts had no chance to communicate what is happening, mothers and fathers could not send emails to theire relatives. No data was flowing. As the phone lines were working, this was the solutions: Modems.
