As you know, while individual ants or bees may not be particularly smart or productive, as a large group they are frighteningly efficient in accomplishing complex tasks. Some researchers are working on ways to make the internet follow a similar model. If it works it sounds like it could be cool. The trick, of course, is making it work.
