Hey, I just noticed that Serval (http://redecentralize.org/interviews/2013/08/14/04-paul-serv...) seems to be a very similar concept to Tin-Can. Do you happen to know how they differ? mk?

Serval is a much more ambitious project (to provide internet to africa) it includes a lot of mesh stuff messaging is secondary.

I recall that JV actually talked to someone at the serval project for some advice.

BTW, we are going to be open-sourcing TC soon. We don't have the time for it, and it would be great if other people could pick it up and carry it forward. There's a number of issues with android fragmentation that need to be addressed.
