In a sense, our survival is based on our own P2P networks. Since I've been moving around in Europe, I have depended more on the networks of people I have made to achieve certain things - being established, getting a livelihood, getting access to resources...than I have been able to depend on the businesses/instutions themselves. I think this is fairly universal.

I would guess this dependency is increasing, both because we have to (increasing weakness of public welfare provisions) and because we 'can' so. Are you familiar with the notion of intensional communities and knotworking, which seem to refer to what you are suggesting?
