Has anyone ever used a piece of software called BitTorrent? it is very interesting, especially to nerds like me.
It seems to be some sort of distribution application for file distribution. Read the intro, its pretty cool!
Here is how it works. There is one server that is seeded with the file. THe one i saw was "Fanimatrix" a movie that some new zealander guys made imitating the matrix. Its a large AVI. The first person starts downloading the file from the server. When the second person starts downloading, they get packets of the file not only from the server, but also from the first user. The 3rd user gets data from 3 sources, etc...It builds on in an exponential fashion
Its a cool idea, but unfortunately, not especially fast while i downloaded Fanimatrix.
What a good idea though, distributing file distribution like that...
