Granted, but then, Roughgarden's work generally seems to get reported on backwards. What's a poor journalist to do? Write a story on how selfish routing helps the Internet? :-)I find it odd that the reaction of nanog readers to the paper title is as though the paper said the opposite of what it does.
If I might, his model says the best is between 0% and a max of 25% better than the selfish result. Selfish routing may actually get us the best possible Internet, although that is not proven.In brief, the paper's says that under certain assumptions the globally optimal latency would be only 25% better than the selfish result.
