Open Content Network

Various authors, Jan 30, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

From the website: "The Open Content Network is a collaborative effort to help deliver large, freely-downloadable content using peer-to-peer technology. The network is essentially a huge 'virtual web server' that links together thousands of computers for the purpose of helping out over-burdened web sites. Using a new Peer-to-Peer technology, called the 'Content-Addressable Web', indviduals will be able to help distribute free content by donating their spare bandwidth and disk space to the network." This concept is a bit tricky; don't expect to figure out what's going on by reading this website unless you have some technical background.
