Bernard Traversat's session focused on his Boeing and FCS JXTA -networking collaboration and ended with a discussion of simple JXTA programming constructs. (A good weblog on the topic of JXTA is Mohamed Abdelaziz's .)
I found his analysis of the history of the Internet insightful. Here are the three chapters according to Traversat, who is a director of advanced development at Sun Microsystems:
Early days of "Internet"
BBN ARPANET, crude computer to computer networking.
Physical addressing, dns, network administration.
Modern p2p -- Self organizing, highly resilient, highly dynamicoverlay network and virtul addressing. Example technologies: Napster and JXTA.
I put this entry together while still sitting at the session using my Sidekick II.
