hardly. only if you broadcast riaa music.

i think the riaa will soon effect a separation between themselves and a new mainstream - those who do not adapt to a new technology will be destroyed by it.

well, good to know the many hours i ran live mixes won't cost live365 any money, i suppose.

i often think of implementing my rapid-convergence p2p algorithm.

then i decide i'd rather sit on my ass

"rapid convergance"?

do tell...

the problem with most p2p networks is they do not converge - as you add users, your network size goes up linearly. this means that for a message to traverse the network, it needs O(N) hops, and will be passed around O(N) times.

Let N be a six digit number, and you can see why gnutella doesn't work.

A sub-optimal solution is the kazaa solution of supernodes.

A superset of that solution is to point-collapse the network and represent it as a set of locally-centered eliptic curves. Convergence on the order of O(log n) should be easy, O(log log n) of medium difficulty.
