  1. Is it possible for Apple/Vongo or some other media content provider to use these torrent-type systems without the consumer knowing – seamless interface?

    I don’t think the average joe cares how he’s getting the content, just that it’s available and quick.

  2. Good. Grief.

    I could rewrite Prodigem in an afternoon. (Only because I put in all the heavy lifting already with my FeedTools library, but I digress.) And actually considered doing so when I happened to notice that Rocketboom was using them.

    Really hoping this acquisition was done purely for the people and not the software.

  3. To add to the P2P M&A mix — I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that Verisign bought Kontiki for $62M. Interesting times indeed.
