In preparation for the Summit, I am going to read Raj Jain's survey (http://bit.ly/24PYhP), David Clark's discussion paper (http://groups.csail.mit.edu/ana/People/DDC/Future%20Internet%206-0.pdf). In addition, I plan on reviewing Trigeorgis's book "Real Options", since I believe this to be a potentially useful framework for thinking about the future Internet architecture. I also plan to read (well, at least a deep skim) of Laura Denardis's book "Protocol Politics". I will undoubtedly come across a few other useful tidbits, but whether I'll have time to read them is another issue.
Here's an overview talk about why & how to do a communication architecture based on content, not hosts: http://multimedia.parc.com/flash/Focus_Area/VanJ_Full_player.swf

Here's a paper with more of the details: http://www.ccnx.org/sites/default/files/netcontent-preprint.pdf

A GPL open source release of the code described in the paper is here: http://www.ccnx.org
As some of you may know, I have been funded by NSF to help coordinate their Future Internet project. As part of that effort (and with some funding by ONR) I have been trying to come up with a analysis that starts with requirements, makes some choices, and then describes what that might imply for the architecture of a future Internet. If you are interested, here is a URL for the current version of my working paper (apologies--it is long).

If you read it, please do not assume that this is supposed to be the answer. It is just one answer, and offers lots of places where by making a different decision, you could go down a different path to a different end. But I hope it illustrates how we can try to work from requirements to a set of design decisions.

Invigorating the future internet debate
Dirk Trossen BT Research, Ipswich, United Kingdom

While many initiatives have been discussing the future of the Internet, the EIFFEL1 think tank set out to push these discussions forward by assembling a community of researchers debating the potential thrusts towards the Future Internet. This article provides an account of these discussions, being addressed both to the EIFFEL membership and more widely to members of the community interested in medium to long-term developments. We outline immediate problems as well as potentially missed opportunities in the current Internet, while focussing the debate on the need for a Future Internet on the style we conduct research as well as how we design systems at large. Most importantly, we recognize that an inter-disciplinary dialogue is required to formulate actions to be taken and to remove barriers to their realization.

Martin,

did you read that survey? i was struck by the fact that a 50+ page survey of future internet architecture research did not have room to identify what problems we have failed to solve in the current Internet. on the first page Raj relegates this topic to an endnote reference, which links to this slide set: http://www.cse.wustl.edu/~jain/talks/ftp/in3_hu.pdf ,
which is a different (angle and) list than i found by interviewing engineers and operators back in 2003-4: http://www.caida.org/publications/presentations/2005/topproblemsnet/ . both lists are worth discussion, but do we have any document that expands on the problems we're trying to solve, what has been tried to solve them in the past, and why those solutions have failed? as lixia and dan reminded me, in any other field of engineering, such a document would be the first phase of R&D.

i deepskimmed protocol politics, i can recommend it as a take on ietf history, but that was only part of what drove internet protocols (it's even a subset of the politics that drove them). her advisor's book, was better. -k.
kc,

I read Janet's book a long time ago. I have to confess that I haven't read Jain's survey paper yet. I have been crushed by stuff since I got back. Thanks for the references. I'll add them to my list.
