> >> What is hidden in the air?
We have observed increased sublimation of human thought into the application
layer of the Internet, proportional to both the number of computer users and the
emergence of new protocols.
Of particular interest to our organisation currently are emmissions from 802.11
devices, resulting in the formation of The 802.11 Division. Packet switched
airborne transmissions from these devices propagate in the 2.4, 3.6 and 5 GHz
frequency bands and are rich with information about the user, the intended
recipient and the devices used.
Devices in this class include those used by notebook computers, various mobile
telephones and wireless routers.
Our 802.11 Division is responsible for the collection, dissection and reflection
of information captured in the air back into public space. Most information
available to us comprises citizen-to-citizen, citizen-to-public and
public-to-citizen transactions across the Internet.
We observe significant reductions in overall transmission from 802.11 devices
when packet streams comprising electronic mail, internet chat, images and
internet web pages are captured, reconstructed and then reflected back into the
corporeal public domain.
Packet payloads may be incidentally modified, distorted and/or routed to other
networks or recipients during this process.
We are the direct manifestation of a citizen’s Network Anxiety. Our reach is
limited only by the material and technical capacity of the networks people use.
Please refer to RFC14 (removed by Vincent Cerf) for more information.
Fear is indigenous to every network. We are an expression of networking itself.
