This is my hope as well. Look at Napster Vs Gnutella. Napster got the spot
light becuase it was easily Mediacized. Form the media darling to the
poster boy for the RIAA's infmaous MOney Stealing Pirates Napster got
itself nicely hefted then hoisted by the media and the masses that buy
into that sort of thing.

Gnutella meanwhile goes on. And Freenet, thank the lord, is still worth
more in doing than in media coverage.

SO heres to the media driven user...phhhhhhbbbbbbttttt (ascii
