I read “Google Is Using Light Beam Tech to Connect Rural India to the Internet.” I understand. But the question just hangs there like a hot air balloon on a still day: Why not use the vaunted Loon balloons? I have an idea or two. What do you think about cost, complexity, and the weather? […]

Jaywing: Can the Company Outperform Tracer?

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:15:20 +0000

I am a person who gathers odd items of information.

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 11:57:43 +0000

Short honk: I read “Major Traffic Destinations Rerouted to Russia.” The main idea is that an event routed traffic to Russia. Worth noting if you are interested in cyber operations. Monitoring is practiced in many locations and countries. Traffic flow routes are important for some operations. Stephen E Arnold, December 13, 2017
