New BitTorrent Beta Makes Transferring Large Media Files Easier

That’s something most entertainment execs don’t want to hear; I say most because I think some understand the value or potential value of a system that shares content by employing the unused bandwidth of its users. This also could be good news for v-bloggers (as in video) and others looking for ways to distribute without overwhelming bandwidth costs. As publisher Bram Cohen explains it, he’s trying to provide near-broadcast economics (distribution, not production) to the web; he wants “publishing files on the Web (to be) painless and disruptively cheap.” The new “trackerless” version makes it easier, allowing those without the resources to monitor downloads to serve as clients.
