Re: Senator Diane Feinstein Wants to know about the Benefits ofP2P
While I agree with everything you said, Scott, I think that is exactly the
kind of application that Feinstein is looking to quash. Her agenda has
been very pro-corporate control anti-free speech, anti-individual since she
took office. The only thing she seems more opposed to is anyone besides
her getting a gun.

That would be truly amazing since I could reconstruct a 680MB ISO from just 61d38fad42b4037970338636b5e72e5a. Wow!Technically, using an Infinate Monkeys approach, you could rebuild the ISO by generating the expentially huge quantity of all possible data and check them and find the one that matches the ISO. Not practical but possible. As far as the P2P thing goes, framing is a free speech argument is probably not a bad way to start. For example, the guy from bikesagainstbush.com was arrested over the weekend (while being interviewed on MSNBC) and video of the arrest from a 3rd party was available on BT within minutes. A method like P2P (and BT's swarming in particular) allowed this file to spread without overtaxing the bandwidth of the person or organization distributing it. Frankly, in a day when news organizations are forced to think about any negative impacts of their reporting on their parent corp's agenda, this is a must have tech. -S
