         The Era of Guerilla Infrastructure
• Guerilla vs. Commercial Infrastructure
  –   Bottom Up
  –   Completely Decentralized
  –   Self-Assembling
  –   Use at Your Own Risk
  –   Paves the Way for Commercial Deployment
• Examples
  –   NSFnetInternet
  –   NCSA MosaicWeb
  –   NapsterPeer-to-Peer Storage
  –   SETI@homePeer-to-Peer Computing
  –   IEEE 802.11Broadband Wireless Internet

                It connects to the audio piece and
                works like a tiny monitor that
                projects an image through the
                really cool bug-eye monocle into
                my eye. It has lots of „serious‟
                applications, but my favorite is to
                watch „Buffy‟.
My mom has already realized that when the video is
 on, the lenses become less transparent. That way
 she knows if I‟m really paying attention to her or
    reading my email. She‟s caught on quickly.
