I've been sitting on an idea for a while to provide some sort of p2p
monitoring. Everybody pools their services and mutually monitors the
others. Each person could monitor maybe 3-5 other people's devices. That
means that you would in turn be monitored by 3-5 others. Maybe 1 or two
would be more appropriate.

I think I'd be willing to moderate something like that if there's enough
interest. Any takers?
