I actually have something similar running here on my local community mesh network. I do have a ssb-browser-client running, but it's still using the same network-key as our main network, creating rooms/pubs for a separate network is essential so that content from here doesn't leak to our community-ssb-network (language and interest barriers).

In a mesh network hops don't make much of a difference, as anyone on the lan will show up as a local connection.

Me and @nonlinear are currently writing a grant to incorporate SSB as the main database for a #community-first app experience, like having a map of the community as main entry-point, so people have an immediate familiarity with the new digital territory.

Creating local economic networks is a big challenge which we've been trying to tackle in different ways over the years. The community map showing local goods and services has been the closest to something useful. We also started a local market on Sundays, which has been the biggest success, hard to replicate something like that digitally. But @miles has been thinking and researching a lot around that, and we're currently working on a community-reciprocity app using SSB.

@abekonge.often SSB and hops maps very well to a mesh setting. And as Luandro said if you are on the same network then you should automatically start replication, so you don't really need pubs and I really love the idea that the social graph would map very well with the physical.

Then again it really depends on what you want to do with it, if you just want to do SSB (like patchwork) app where messages are async passed around the network and eventually end up where they need to then that should be pretty much work out of the box. If you on the other hand want to do something like being able to do an audio call through the mesh network using SSB tech on the transport layer, then that might also be possible. Something like sending binary data over EBT (which does a spanning tree in a network). Could be a very fun project ;-)

@abekonge.often

irdest seems very interesting, I'm not sure about the idea of increasing the hops distance tho

@abekonge.often I like where you are going with this. I'm wondering if those two circles of connections and messages would be better build as two separate apps instead of trying to cram it into one.

@abekonge.often yes. In essence there is a big difference in initial trust in those models.

If SSB would support different levels of following, from the current high-trust following that includes replication of the feed and all the feeds the followee follows down to some no-endorsement temporary following that doesn't replicate neither the full feed and without transitivity, then clients could well automatically follow at a no-endorsement level everybody they encounter on a local network. This would match the real life policy of not picking up the phone when the number of the caller is unknown but listening to someone who chats you up on the street (with a mute and a block option, of course).
