@feonixrift we’ve become to accustom to continuous internet connection that it’s easy to forget just how powerful and resource thrifty asynchronous communication systems are.
Things like autonomous mesh networks become trivial to build when they only need to support asynchronous applications.
@deutrino @feonixrift really the only thing I don’t have a turnkey answer for is some kind of addressing scheme that works w/o centralized name resolution. We use DNS and MX records for this now, and maybe we could keep using dns in an async-oriented network, but I don’t know how off the top of my head :)
