Welcome to the House Napster Built
from the new-inter-structure-networks dept
Napster was just a brief glimmer of some of the potential that P2P networking will bring. The next thing that I believe will occur involves inter-structure networks (yep, it?s a new term I?ve created for describing P2P infrastructure plays). Inter-structure networks will be used for many different purposes but one of the first will probably be using it as a dynamic system for preventing service bottlenecks due to net congestion.

Distributed File Sharing
Distributed file sharing networks generate a lot of unecessary traffic. Serverless ones like Gnutella especially so. I hope the popularity of Napster doesn’t make people start going overboard on this stuff. The Client/Server/Server List Server system that hotline uses works much better, and allows a higher degree of choice as to whether you want people making requests on your box.
Re: bullshit generator
I cranked up my own bullshit generator, it helps when you have very little sleep and you’ve been staring at a computer screen for about 12 hours/day for a week. You’ll be amazed at the type of bullshit you can crank out.
Did you come up with that one on your own, or did you use the bullshit generator?
