about the fact that the Adobe press release didn’t actually say p2p, or that the Amicima technology was only about VOIP, etc. One esteemed member of the Flash community and old friend, Brian Lesser, a Flash server guru and author of Programming Flash Communication Server suggested in the comments to yesterday's article that there might be restrictions on p2p usage that might limit some of the CDN possibilites I described yesterday. On the other hand the piece did get some great coverage over at GigaOM from the likes of one of my blogging heroes, Om Malik, who essentially concurred with my assessment of the import of ...

Beyond P2P Transfers « Mobile Money for the Unbanked
transfers – the “killer app” that propelled Safaricom’s M-PESA to such extraordinary success. It was clear that Safaricom had tapped a rich vein of latent demand for a safe and affordable way to remit money in-country, and this kicked off a rush to bring such services to market all over the world. Yet a number of mobile money platforms that mainly offer P2P transfers have struggled to attract users over the course of the last year. Of course, it’s difficult to isolate why this has happened-mobile money is a complex business, and lots of things can go wrong. But one possible explanation is that ... market research, surveys and trends


SiliconBeat: Itiva: The video file transfer killer app?
The boom in Internet videos transfers -- from movie downloads to amateur video sharing -- is causing pain in the Internet backbone. Now a Palo Alto start-up called Itiva has popped up, saying it has found the magic pill: It says it can do something that no other start-up has offered so far: (1) It can cheapen the cost of video transmissions for big movie or video producers , and thus match the promise of the peer-to-peer technologies out there, and at the same time (2) lower the cost for the Internet service providers . Here is the Mercury News story we ran today about Itiva and some of the other start-ups out there helping with ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Streaming video to outpace P2P traffic growth | Signal Strength ...
Video is still the killer app of the Internet, but peer-to-peer services like BitTorrent will no longer account for the bulk of traffic on the Net as streaming services grow at a quicker pace over the next few years. For 10 years, peer-to-peer traffic, such as BitTorrent, which includes some video, has been the largest type of traffic on the Internet. But according to Cisco Systems, streaming video will grow at a faster growth rate over the next few years. And starting this year, streaming video will account for more traffic on the Net than peer-to-peer traffic. According to Cisco's annual Visual Networking Index Forecast , ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
ICKLER: Battles Back For 13th At Iowa Speedway
Brian Ickler may not have had the racetruck to beat in Sunday's Lucas Oil 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton. But he had arguably the next-best through most of the first half of the race. That's when it went all for naught as the 24-year-old from San Diego, driving in his third Truck Series event in the No. 18 Toyota Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) and the 14th of his career, got turned from behind on a restart just past the halfway point in today's 205-lap race, fell two laps off the pace, and used the rest of the day to battle his way back onto the lead lap and settle ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Writing the Next Killer Peer-To-Peer (P2P) Application
This is a chronicle (of some sorts) where I explore how one might go about building and testing a P2P app. This is the path that I took and it may/not be the best way for your needs, but in the least it should serve as a guide for some of the difficulties and tradeoffs involved. This is reverse chronological. So first, I describe how one can test and get some concrete numbers on how the app might behave in the real world. Next (or before), how to simplify the building process using middleware. And of course, the all important question of which programming language to use ;-) Other `side' issues will be discussed as ...
Slashdot | Has P2P Become a Passing Fad?
Sure, there are plenty of people on modems. A great many of these people have some sort of high speed internet access available but choose not to get it. The other folks, well, progression.. We can't keep tailoring to the least common denominator. A lot of people want to see cool looking web sites with animations. I think a little flash is just fine. I pay for broadband, might as well make use of it. Besides, most web sites that aren't flash-oriented have either little flash, no flash, or the option to use no flash. And you can disable the plugin. "For whom the 400kb flash crapplet is a serious burden ...
