Share and share alike
: I haven’t done a video weblog (aka vlog) in too long because (a) I’m lazy and (b) I’m cheap — that is, I don’t want to find myself with a big bandwidth bill.
The solution to that problem is bubbling up: weblog P2P. It was a topic raised at the Boston weblog conference and now John Robb is raising it again, starting to define how it would work.
Unlike nefarious Napster, weblog P2P would work, Robb says, only via links, not hard-drive searches. Thus the files would be legit. And they’d be served from many webloggers all sharing the bandwidth bill. Content communism.
