Remember those clogged tubes Ted Stevens was talking about? Luckily there is a great way to free them up so those internets that your staff is sending you will reach you in time. No, I'm not talking about Liquid Plumr, but about P2P.

Technology Reports just published a story that suggest P2P technology might help to make the net work better. From the article:

"The increased use of peer-to-peer communications could improve the overall capacity of the Internet and make it run much more smoothly."

The article makes for an interesting read, especially since it shows that the findings were only possible because the researchers used a distributed approach in the first place, using thousands of volunteers to map the topology of the internet.
