Hi Pars,

You should talk to Jos Vrancken. He has been talking about such ideas for years.
See http://www.nextgenerationinfrastructures.eu/index.php?pageID=17&itemID=449455

I think you'll get along with him. He also says things like "I am not here to discuss these details." and "I don't think it is impossible." when people ask him about how his ideas could possibly work... It can be fun for theoretical research, but not for running a real world wide network with millions of users...
