And soon, you might be able to point them to open social networking.

Software-defined networking, or SDN, grew in large part out of research done at Stanford, led by professor Nick McKeown and a group of colleagues and graduate students, called the Programmable Open Mobile Internet 2020 (POMI) project.

That project received a $10 million grant from the National Science Foundation in 2008 to “address fundamental issues emerging in the forthcoming broadband wireless mobile revolution” and to “create an ‘open’ alternative to mobile ubiquitous computing and communication that can spur innovations.”
The POMI work, the NSF predicted, “will have a dramatic impact on the choices users will have in the way their data and information is computed, stored and communicated.”
