Regarding Facebook tracking non-users Mark Zuckerberg said "This kind of data collection is fundamental to how the internet works."
I'm not a networking expert but I know enough to be able to confidently say that nothing at all about this data collection is fundamental to how the Internet works. I guess he was using Silicon Valley speak where "the internet" means "huge corporations who make most of their money by selling ads and illegally collecting as much data as possible".

if you have a netbook / umpc, 2 people with phones, modern DSLRs / mirrorless cameras and no cell access what would you do to setup a properly functional "cloud" for coordination of data, details (locations, maps, more), backups, data sync, etc?

I don't use Emacs for coding in Blocky, Squeak, Java (anymore). I don't use Emacs for editing nginx config.
I use Emacs, vim, Textmate, vscode for coding in Ruby.
I prefer Emacs when I code in Common Lisp, Clojure, and of course Elisp.
Racket syntax is similar to Common Lisp and Clojure. So using Emacs may be a good choice. I am not sure whether Emacs and Racket REPL are integrated properly. If it isn't, then I don't have to try.
