Another interesting thing to do might be Babblenet (which I just found)

to quote IBM's site

What is BabbleNet? BabbleNet is a completely decentralized, peer-to-peer 
(P2P), real-time chat program that allows users to create an ad hoc chat 
network without connecting to or installing a central server. Basically, it 
is a cross between Gnutella and IRC. BabbleNet was developed in a modular way 
so that the chat functionality sits upon a generic P2P framework. 

How does it work?The main components of BabbleNet are 

Chat user interface

P2P framework for node-to-node communications

Simple, XML-based P2P communication protocol

Multicast peer location protocol. 

Cool - but what is the protocol? I havn't been able to find this yet
