Wired News: Speed Meets Feed in Download Tool
by Paul Boutin 3/15/04
"A demo publishing system launched Friday by a popular programmer and blogger merges two of this season's hottest tech fads -- RSS news syndication and BitTorrent file sharing -- to create a cheap publishing system for what its author calls "big media objects." The hybrid system is meant to eliminate both the publisher's need for fat bandwidth, and the consumer's need to wait through a grueling download. " This is essentially scheduling a download via an RSS reader and using BitTorrent to download. If you already schedule downloads and do P2P stuff, this is not new, but kind of cool anyway.
