Last night I fired up Bittorrent and downloaded 3.5 gigs of music from this year’s SXSW bands. Am listening now. It is totally wonderful music. A real gift. To download you need Bittorrent and a few hours (I just downloaded it overnight).
This is a major gift to all of us on the Internet from the bands and from SXSW. I appreciate it very much — this is NOT stolen music, it’s all on the up-and-up. Thank you to Bram Cohen, who brought us Bittorrent. It’s really great to have a way to distribute such large files to everyone in the world.
