I think there has been enough academia bashing (completely useless!)
in the past.
If you look up the old mails then you know what I mean.
Sorry, I still have difficulties to understand. I looked up the old mails (of
this mailing list) and found only one mail mentioning "academic" and that was
in march, so i am not sure if you are referring to that.
Anyway, if there was bashing (on whatever) then I am sorry, but it also would
be just fair to give a reasonable hint (in a reasonable time) to the
statements that caused the bad feelings. Otherwise it causes just reproaches
without leaving a chance to defend/explain and even worse at a time where
nobody remembers what the actual thread was about.
The same applies to olsr but here i want to add that comparing batman with
existing state of the art solutions is usual and wanted. I admit , personally
I might be a bit biased but thats why we have this public mailing list, so
that everybody can question the given statements and come up with precise and
concrete counter arguments.
I am quite
convinced that academia already overtook
the freifunk style networks some time ago! And you just don't notice it.
Can you provide further (background-)links on that (especially interesting
would be those based on real world tests as addressed below)?
Again: I do NOT really think about OLSR so much in
I just wanted to give you some feedback.
You could also sum the feedback up as:
"Hochmut/Arroganz kommt vor dem Fall"
I hope I am wrong.
nevertheless, I am very curious when the next real world tests come out.
Well, again. Just my personal feelings and observations. I hope I am
