I suspect that many of us would secretly prefer to think of uncontrollable profits from the NETWORK. Exponential explosions are a wild ride.

Speaking of a bias towards the UNIT, did anyone else detect a distinct bias towards the UNIT in the discussion of favorite books on programming earlier this month? (OK, there was some Occam...)

In honor of Strata's wonderful microrant, I put forth:

1) "How to Write Parallel Programs" by Carriero and Gelernter 2) "Actors" by Gul Agha 3) "The Connection Machine" by Danny Hillis 4) "OSPF: Anatomy of an Internet Routing Protocol" by John Moy

These books articulately cover programming networks, rather than units. I'd guess that they are still useful enough...

Others? Has anyone got favorite articles or books on P2P?
