From a recent email discussion came a request for a simple “howto” for using bitTorrent. I’ve been peripherallyÂ interested in BT for a while, mentioning it in my Harry Mudd Future Peeking presentation.
So with much better things to with my time, I whipped up this ad for a book not yet in stores:
If we could side step the whinges people have about this being the bane of illegal activity and the realm of black t-shirt clad teenage pirates, and just look with interest at this creative shift in the way information can be distributed, isn’t it exciting?
I’d been toying with doing some experimentation on using bitTorrrent for sharing digital stories- people are expending great effort to produce fantastic personal narratives, but the file size is unwieldy for sharing… what do you think? I’ve got some content lined up, and as soon as I have read the book above, I may start dabbling later in the summer (that would be July for you southern hemispherics)
