Link means link. Lots of potential there. With some kind of control over the
link, you have FTL linking. Maybe not practical, but the glimmer of a
possibility. How about this:

Entwined particals, say photons, are sent left and right. All the left ones
are up spin. All the right ones are down spin. One thousand miles to the
the photons are read. To transmit info to the right, the left one decomposes
the spin. Thereby when the photons get to the right one, they know the spin
has been read, so a bit of info has been transmitted by the left.

Of course this wont work because of ..... whatever. But something might.
