Unique WikiWiki-Like Note Taker
I just discovered Webnote, a DHTML WikiWiki-like online note taker. It has a unique spin on note taking, allowing a user to arrange notes across a web page and save it using a cross-browser DHTML UI. It is licensed under a BSD license.
Interview with Bram Cohen of BitTorrent
WebTorrent: a BitTorrent Extension for High Availability Servers
WebTorrent: a BitTorrent Extension for High Availability Servers: "Achieving content high-availability is one of the most important goals of a webserver system. In order to achieve high-availability in the traditional client-server setting, the server must have the bandwidth and the hardware needed to handle any peak load that might occur. However, this is a very costly and rarely practical solution, especially for most non-commercial servers subjected to the Slashdotting effect. We propose a WebTorrent system based on BitTorrent that will leverage the resources of the clients to help the server make the content more available. Such a system will help alleviate the load on the server and reduce client download times."
