This is a start. A company planting a seed using the Raspberry Pi, a small single-board computer. Open source at the heart of this idea and some much more 🙂
Our project, Dreaming About Open Hardware, aka NOC-in-a-Box™ shares a deep kinship of its heritage due to Open Source 🙂

The vision is to plant the seed of these boxes with the hopes that a creator-centered system cooperatively shares and protects one another as Content Creators. We are all content creators for the Internet, at the end of the day 🙂
Distributed trust networks, sharing content for which people are remunerated using a block chain crypto-currency of the Creator’s choice. We saw MaidSAFE as a part of the solution we are envisioning.
