<h1>Censorship Proof Data Repositories</h1>

<p>Software package repositories, <a href="https://rubygems.org/">rubygems/gem</a>,
<a href="https://www.npmjs.com/">npm</a>, <a href="https://www.nuget.org/">nuget</a>,
and scientific data collections, for example,
<a href="http://www.genome.jp/kegg/pathway.html">KEGG</a>, and media
collections like the various internet archives can be made decentralized,
universal, censorship tolerant. <a href="./ainfo/4d6ff3a33a3672ad">Typosquatting</a><i>(<a href="https://archive.is/RPwM3">archival
copy</a>)</i> is eliminated due to the fact that no sane person will often type
in the Silktorrent package names, secure hash values, manually.&nbsp;</p>

<h1>Coping with Delays in Space Communication</h1>

<p>Due to the time it takes for a radio signal to propagate between the planet
Earth and the planet Mars the Silktorrent packet based software applications
will be very competitive among Earth-Mars communications applications. A
citation from <a href="http://lwn.net/Articles/652580/">lwn.net article</a>&nbsp;<i>(<a href="https://archive.is/TfuCm">archival
copy</a>, <a href="./ainfo/c7c1e7f4d9461f9f">local copy</a>)</i>:</p>

<p style="text-align: right;"><i>...Krekel noted that Elon Musk wants to get
humanity to Mars by 2026. Do we think that 41-year-old technology like TCP/IP
or the 21-year-old HTTP will work on Mars? Can you call Gmail as a web app on
Mars? Someone in the audience suggested that it would just take "patience"
which elicited widespread laughter. Krekel said that the protocols we have will
not work on Mars.</i></p>

<p style="text-align: right;"><i>But we already have Mars on Earth in places
where internet connectivity is not all that good. In 1981, there were 300
computers connected to the internet, but now there are now billions of devices
in the world that are still using this phone-based model. It turns out that's
not actually true, he said, some are following other models. There are
communication and synchronization mechanisms that some of these devices are
using to transfer data directly between them without using the internet.</i></p>

<h1>Affordable Data Exchange for Passengers</h1>

<p>The Silktorrent packet based application architecture might also be
beneficial at the airline industry, where planes that pass each-other, exchange
Silktorrent packets. The routes, takeoff times, speeds, landing times of planes
are often times public, which means that a passanger jet on a long flight can
pass a Silktorrent packet wishlist to a regional flight in mid-air, the
regional flight lands before the plane at the long flight, offloads the
wishlist to ground based servers, those upload the request response to another
regional flight that is expected to be at the range of the long-flight plane.
That kind of arrangement can compensate for the lack of satellite bandwidth for
whatever reason, economic, weather, space-weather, satellite maintenance, etc.
All the planning, routing, is fully automated and all airports have internet
connections, WiFi-s, etc. anyways. Similar schemes can take place between
trains, cars, lorries, ships. Buses and metro-trains and trams have relatively
well predictable routes and schedules. Even taxis can participate. The routes
of people, who use GPS-navigation at their cars are also known in advance,
allowing further data packet route planning.</p>

<h1>Social Shield for Military Computer Clusters</h1>

<p><b>To make fuel last longer, aircraft, drones included, must be as light as
possible.</b> Therefore the aircraft can not carry huge computer racks. In 21.
century warfare target detection is automated, including target detection by
using 3D radar images. If targets are small drones and droids and 3D radar
images cover whole cities, the data volume might not fit to the physically
small and light on-board computers of the light aircraft. The analysis of those
images might take more power than the physically light and small aircraft are
capable of producing or dissipating, specially, if they need to fly stealthily
without glowing in various spectrum regions. The solution is to offload the
data processing part to ground vehicles, ships, satellites. The data might be
relayed to huge data centers, where it is stored and processed. <b>That makes
data centers a vital military asset</b> and if target acquisition and
situational awareness depends on those data centers, <b>it makes military sense
to destroy the enemy's data centers at the very first hours of the war</b>. On
the other hand, if global economy depended on the same data centers that are
being used by militaries for data acquisition, then no supermafia would dare to
blow up the data centers, because no sane supermafia wants to hurt the
businesses of its own tax slaves. The CIA has already
<a href="https://archive.is/ADlci">used that tactic for years</a>.</p>
