We need to join together to help the second superpower, itself, grow stronger." -- James Moore  More >

The magic is in keeping track of it all under p2p drop-in/drop-out conditions. It works. It is simple for the users. See the Bit Conjurer homepage. And here is an interesting article about the Python coding techniques behind BitTorrent.
