 Of Ants and IP Routing

O'Reilly talks about IP Routing.

"What does all this have to do with IP routing? Routers, those little entities that make up IP networks, operate using local rules. Collectively, the routers in a network present a robust, dynamic routing infrastructure, adapting to failures and congestion. In other words, the problem of IP routing lends itself to the same bottom-up self-organization as the world of ants and the slime mold."
