Actually in such an open room it may have the reach already,
one would need to try.
I think the only roadblocks are more people joining the effort,
Stefan Schmidt started quite seriously, I believe Richard Sharpe
has or is also working on something.

I personally think mesh networks and delay tolerant networks
could lead to interesting use cases. Let's see :-)
