here's some cool info about manilla and automatic torrent creation.... from Dave Winer.... ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Shawn Van Every <vanevery@...> Date: Fri, 22 Oct 2004 16:02:52 -0400 Subject: Interesting news from the Manilla folk To: Jay dedman <jay.dedman@...> http://archive.scripting.com/2004/10/21#When:3:49:38AM Excerpt: Yesterday, talking with Marcus Mauller, we figured out how to integrate BitTorrent with Manila. The key is to do it through Gems. In a special Manila site on a server running the BitTorrent software, when you upload a Gem to that site, it automatically generates a meta file, and links to it in the Gems table listing. It's the perfect user interface. The content creator needs to know nothing about the difficult process of Torrent-izing a media file, the URL is handled the same way the non-Torrent URL is handled.
