I think of pub/sub as an application concept:  I have content I am  
willing to share, and someone else tells me that they are interested.  
In this context, I should think the receiving node would tell the  
sending node that it was interested if the other guy wanted to talk.

So now I wonder how this works. I walk into a meeting room and open  
my laptop. It joins a wireless network, and voila! the peers and  
servers I am interested in all tell me that they are publishing  
something to which I might subscribe?

I think this is going to require some work to describe. At the end of  
the day, it is never the receiver that knows there is content out  
there to receive; it is always the one who sends it who has that
