Sparse Random Graphs

I will give an elementary, probabilistic introduction to some lesser known siblings of the usual random graph, discovered independently (and from different angles of approach) by Spencer & Shelah and by Baldwin & Shi. Apart from being interesting in their own right, these are also close relatives of Hrushovski constructions. (I won't assume familiarity with these.)
