The article speaks purty, but it has all been said before. The romance of
Fanning vs the Industry has been a staple in the media for a time.

I do like the Pro Con break down of napster vs gnutella, sadly they dont
ask Fanning about it in the article.

What wee need now is some moments for self examination, for the old fart
coders who spend a life time reinventing the For Next loop to ralize its
time to shit or get off the pot.

Do something, the soil is fertile ...this i think is the real message out
of the whole Npaster/gnutella/freenet motif. Even with bad protocols and
raw code there is change happening.

Maybe the stones said it best when they said "get out your ya yas"
