This book presented a short tour of OMNs. It looked back at its origins in DTNs, its characteristics, advances made over the last two decades, and various applications. In this book, we looked at the aspects of routing in OMNs, issues of cooperation and heterogeneity, and a different dimension—aspects of human users in the network. In this final chapter of the book, we put our learning in perspective, and look at the big picture emerging out of all these discussions.
