a battery of broken dreams - wireless senseless networks

sensor nets, whats that about then eh? wireless sensor nets. so look at the trends in battery life and the proposals (smart dust, speckled computing etc) for more and more resources distributed in the environment - aint gonna happen - we just looked at a 1 month experiment simply logging where all of a high school population is - we need 2000 devices with either 2000 batteries changing every 10 days, or else being recharged.

its all fantasy - cloud cuckoo senseless vapourware.

but some cute algorithms of course (wicked grin)

self organisation is so much more fun than command and control
