In the realm of fantasy, what obstacles would stop a parallel
"geek-net" from forming?  That is, in many cities we live close enough
to our neighbors that an 802.11 peering network can form, each access
point running inter-router protocols.  Of course, here and there these
things would have to peer to the standard internet, but it's cheaper
to band together to pay for a T1 or better here and there than to have
everyone have to pay a lot for descent service.

Of course, only the geeks and nerds would care, so it may simply not
be affordable.
