I submitted “P2P 2.0 and the Future of Digital Media” as a panel for SXSW 2009. Please, please, please vote for my panel. It’s going to rock.
The panel will include a group of leaders in the P2P world who are together ushering in a new generation of P2P applications that will turn media distribution on its head, enabling any web site to seamlessly integrate P2P. These applications enable sites to include high resolution videos, for example, streamed directly through the browser but using P2P CDNs behind the scenes.
Users on these new sites won’t even know they’re using P2P. They’ll just know they’re seeing some amazing content.
Web site owners will be able to give their users higher resolution files than ever before while lowering their bandwidth bills.
