Customers Vs. Service-providers.
I wanted to take the opportunity to pitch in on the discussion thats presented in this article by Ivan Pepelnjak: http://blog.ioshints.info/2010/07/p2p-traffic-is-bad-for-network.html with the headline of “P2P traffic is bad for the network”. I agree with the headline… Somewhat… P2P is bad for the network, in the sense that it causes congestion and because of that, it makes using the net a bad experience for everyone else.
rettighedsportalen.dk – a place for all things copyrighted
I was checking piratgruppen.org (A place in favor of sharing things online) the other day, and found that a new site, rettighedsportalen.dk had been started by a former spokesperson of piratgruppen.org. The site aims to shed some light on immaterial “rights”.
What I was thinking a while back..
This is cool, a p2p program based on real life trust. Alliance is a program that everyone has seen before, but with a twist. Instead of searching everybody and their uncle’s stash of bits, you only search a much smaller circle of people whom you already trust.
12.000.000 is a very large number
But it is still the number of peers The Piratebay had sometime during the past week.A peer is defined in the bittorrent world as one who connects to download/upload some part of a file. The number 12.000.000 is also about twice the amount of people living in Denmark at the moment.
