Another Torrent Thing

Broadcast Machine is another system that combines torrent features with the possibility of creating your own ‘channel’, which I think is another way of saying syndicated feed. I haven’t looked into it (mainly because these systems will never be allowed to run on a university network due to their potential for abuse – aka downloading of pirated content) but I assume that participatory culture dot org maintains some infrastructure/systems that facilitates all this.

We have already arrived at viable online delivery of HD content, if you’re happy to wait. Now is the time for the format/system wars, or what the venture capitalists would recognise as market share.
