JXTA

Juxtapose (JXTA) was originally one of Bill Joy's research projects aimed at developing a network programming and computing platform able to solve a number of the problems in modern distributed computing. JXTA has since become a community-based open source development platform. The four main concepts of the JXTA project are: the ability to "pipe" from one peer to another, a grouping notion, the ability to monitor and meter, and a security layer. The JXTA Shell is a prototype application that illustrates the use of JXTA Technology. The JXTA Shell permits interactive access to the JXTA platform's building blocks through a simple, text based interface (available on Solaris Operating Environment, Linux, or Microsoft Windows). A Technical Specification provides a description of the architecture and key elements of the Project JXTA technology including: peers, advertisements, messages, pipes and protocols. Demonstrations are available for download. See the FAQ or the documentation page for more details.

Supreme Court Decides Unanimously Against Grokster
Updating as we go. Supremes have ruled 9-0 in favor of the studios in MGM v Grokster. But does the decision have wider import? Is it a death knell for tech? It's starting to look like the answer is no. (Jun 27, 2005)
