	att_abstract={{We propose a system that makes opportunistic use of mobile computing devices and ad-hoc networking to provide a transient storage service to clients in a localized geographical region. It is assumed that mobile devices are autonomous i.e. their mobility patterns are individually determined and not under the control of a central entity. The main challenge is to offset the potential data loss caused by node mobility with inter-node communication. We first argue, on the basis of simulation and theory that such a service is feasible, given a sufficiently high density of mobile devices. A distributed communication and storage protocol is then presented, and it is shown through testbed experiments and simulation that the protocol operates correctly and makes efficient use of storage space and communication bandwidth, while maximizing the longevity of stored data.
