This paper describes a prototype low-power wireless link designed for embedding into everyday objects. After a brief description of the hardware platform, we discuss protocols for discovery and long-term rendezvous, contrasting our approach with master based approaches. The protocols are presented as examples drawn from a larger family of interoperable protocols which may be important to cover the broad range of applications for this sort of network. We then describe some of the applications
