hello list,

thought it might be interesting to open a new thread.

The Unmanaged Internet Architecture (UIA) provides zero-configuration  
connectivity among mobile devices through personal names. Users assign  
personal names through an ad hoc device introduction process requiring  
no central allocation. Once assigned, names bind securely to the  
global identities of their target devices independent of network  
location. Each user manages one namespace, shared among all the user's  
devices and always available on each device. Users can also name other  
users to share resources with trusted acquaintances. Devices with  
naming relationships automatically arrange connectivity when possible,  
both in ad hoc networks and using global infrastructure when  
available. A UIA prototype demonstrates these capabilities using  
optimistic replication for name resolution and group management and a  
routing algorithm exploiting the user's social network for connectivity.

I am interested about your opinion
