The Amorphous Computing project is aimed at developing programming methodologies for systems composed of vast numbers of locally-interacting, identically-programmed agents. This paper presents some of the building blocks for robust collective behavior that have emerged as part of this effort, and describes how organizing principles from multi-cellular organisms may apply to multi-agent systems.
