the similarity of the recent parallel work on
smart, ad hoc, self organised, wireless network routing
smart ad hoc, self organised peer2peer systems,
has been remarked on a few times...
the applicability of the work of both to the internet's lower level
shortcomings is also reasoanble...
actually, a lot of the constraints are different tho....for example,
non-reachability of a node in a wireless system and a p2p system is a
_feature_, so is anonymity...
fixed networks dont have these luxuries:-)
