Anil Dash: Rogers Cadenhead is Trying to Destroy BitTorrent

This was an older post from Anil but I do feel compelled to comment on it because of the coming storm with the P2P after the Grokster stuff.

Ted Roche first introduced me to BitTorrent for downloading IT conversations but with the number of things I'm downloading on a regular basis now - it is the best way for distributing downloads to multiple people.

Now Roger's site does post an update that notes that Cohen thought of this manifest as a parody but the other comments are 100% accurate: if someone is to be penalized for something they "thought" 4 years ago, and without the opportunity to change their mind, then we would be never allowed to learn as our thoughts from years ago would come back and be used as evidence against our learning.
