El Paquete / Sneakernets
El Paquete is an example of a sneakernet. Sneakernets are an informal word for sharing digital information in real life (using a hard drive, floppy disk, USB flash drive) rather than through the internet. The above is a response to the political climate in Cuba, but you can imagine creating a server for a smaller community – for example, between a group of friends where you share movies to watch.

- Local social networks on early web.
- Due to time it took to get online and cost of it, it was limited to local areas
- Frequently became a bulletin board of shared interests
- Frequently members started meeting in person

Trading with the Enemy
“I spent 4 years planning and eight months breeding and homing a kit of fifty pigeons to a loft I built in Key West. My goal was to prove that pigeons could make the 90-mile flight from Havana back to Key West carrying highly coveted contraband Cuban Cohiba cigars. Eleven returned.”
