Student codes 'google for torrents'

A student recently decided to create an algorithm like Google's to index web pages. After some iterations and months of hard work the code did not seem to work as well as Google's, so he decided to use the fruits of his labor in a more restricted field - he limited his crawler to find bit-torrent files. He then proceeded to check those torrents to eliminate the deadwood and the fakes and to put up the ones that had sufficient information on a server. Here is his description of what he did and… Continue

Book: A Reenchanted World: The Quest For A New Kinship With Nature by James William Gibson.





Introduction



James William Gibson:



"1, The culture of enchantment creates symbolic, totemic kinship ties with wild animals. It does not erases human-animal differences, but clearly links them in human-animal kinship ties.

Transition - The Movie

P2P Etiquette

I am hopefully not breaking P2P etiquette here, but my Kickstarter project funding seems to be stalled.

If I am to make further progress this year, I need to make this work.



So, I am requesting that you consider 5 or 10 dollars for the project, its is less about the amount, than about attracting a show of interest and support. This is a reasonably small sum, and you'll all have access to the full plans when they are published in march 2010. Equally important is for interested… Continue
