    I don't know if you guys read about this but we have the first certified wifi network name registrar ever, on which you can reserve a wifi network name: http://wirelessregistry.com

    Basically if the industry of Smesh or wireless mesh grid gets up and running this registry will go legit just like ICANN. The first year of registration is free, one name per email (I've registered a few nice names).

    "Most of them have either a WiFi or Bluetooth signal emanating from them. In many cases these devices can be named or have an existing name which is detectable by other smartphone, laptops and tablets. Claiming a wireless name and using it as the wireless identifier of your devices gives you the ability to control what information can be made available to others who detect your devices? signals. The Wireless Registry now allows detection to take place without connection. Since any smartphone is already connected to the Internet, it can check The Wireless Registry when it detects your wireless name and respond with the information that you?as the owner of that wireless name?have associated to it."

    and more importantly...
    "If you are a business or individual who wants to protect your wireless identity or brand name, this is the place to do it. The Wireless Registry is the only patented wireless registry in the world. Just like a domain name, once you register your wireless name, you immediately own that wireless name (or SSID - Service Set Identifier) uniquely in The Wireless Registry. Like e-mail or domain names, this is a first come first serve system, so hurry up and register the names you want before someone else does."

    Now it's impossible to enforce this registration, if I register "casino" and I own the wireless name, I can't stop other people to name their wireless devices "casino". But, if we all get the global wireless network and we'll use clouds and fogs and all the IOT stuff then, it could happen.

    Remember, back in the early 90's people thought domain names were a fad and they wouldn't pick up, and now look at the world wide web where most of us make a living and all of us find sources of entertainment and information.

    As I said, I've registered some names, maybe it will pick up, maybe it will die, didn't cost me a penny. I'll see at the end of the year if I renew them or not.

    Hope we all get rich in about 10-15 years from this :D
