The Neighborhood Intranet
from the watching-over-you dept
Companies are apparently working on products that will turn your local high speed connection into part of a neighborhood intranet. This brings the “neighborhood watch” programs to a new level. The system can be used to alert neighbors if it thinks someone has broken in, or if there’s some other sort of issue that people nearby should know about. I wonder if it will make neighbors more friendly too. People don’t seem to talk to their neighbors very much any more (at least not around here).
