let's assume it is Ethernet that has broadcast ability, 3 or more entities join at the same time and they want to elect one of them to be the master. Let's say whoever has the smallest MAC address become the master. Any pointers for such an algorithm? I am sure somebody must have studied it thoroughly and I won't need to come up with a messy solution of my own. thanks.
