Cory Doctorow writes about [His] Date with the Gnomes of San Jose at the first P2P Working Group meeting, which looks like it might be a stillborn effort by Intel to coopt (or just to support?) the peer-to-peer community.
Really great quote from the article: “[peer to peer nets are] faery infrastructure, networks whose maps form weird n-dimensional topologies of surpassing beauty and chaos; mad technological hairballs run by ad-hocracies whose members each act in their own best interests.
In a nutshell, peer-to-peer technology is goddamn wicked. It’s esoteric. It’s unstoppable. It’s way, way cool.”
