    This looks VERY interesting to me. I would love to see this, or something
    like it, come to pass.

    Bandwidth From Strangers Challenges AT&T, Verizon
    <http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-01-31/bandwidth-from-strangers-challenges-at-and-t-verizon>

    Eyal Toledano, a 36-year-old master’s degree candidate at the MIT Media Lab
    in Cambridge, Mass., has built an Android app, Air Mobs, which—were it ever
    released—would allow you to sell wireless bandwidth to a stranger near you
    in return for credits allowing you to buy bandwidth from another stranger in
    the future. He used to serve as chief technology officer for Samsung Telecom
    Research Israel and is not completely naive about the nature of America’s
    wireless broadband market. Toledano is fairly certain, as am I, that his app
    will not immediately please AT&T (T) or Verizon Wireless. (Verizon declined
    to comment; AT&T has yet to respond.)
