[zeromq-dev] I found two mesh network softwares on android that might help EdgeNet happen.

There are at least four layers that need to exist for EdgeNet to really

1) Link-layer----one of the above may help with this. Open Garden promises
a lot if it works.
2) Networking----Zyre solves this
3) Content management and distribution----This can be ignored for
opportunistic synchronous usages, but is needed for any kind of
asynchronous usage. Not much work has been done in this direction yet. The
basic question is, if I can't get content to the phone that will eventually
need it, where should I place it to maximize the chances it gets there in a
scalable way?
4) Apps built for EdgeNet. I find it unlikely that existing apps can be
made to work seamlessly with EdgeNet except in rare cases, so it will need
a separate ecosystem.
