"Internet 0, Interdevice Internetworking" by Neil Gershenfeld, and Danny Cohen, IEEE Circuits & Devices September/October 2006, pages 48-55 (read online pdf)
This article goes over the technical aspects of the proposed Internet-0 but It also goes over some of the background. They developed Internet-0 to be an open standard to replace the 10+ that exist currently. This would enable competition in the market so devices made by different companies could communicate with each other much like how different brand computers can connect to the same internet. I think this is great idea but looking at this 6 years later, it doesn't seem the idea has taken off.
