Knowing a bunch of those people, and how well they play with others. I
can predict exactly where this working group will go faster then you can
say "crash and burn" (well, OK, _all_ working groups end up the same
place, so this isn't revelation or anything)... I even delt with the
Intel boys way back when, and... get this, they thought it P2P would
encourage sales of the Intel high end chip line. They wanted 100%
control then, I doubt that has changed...

Wait wait, does this mean they will have a product in 6-8 years, if they
all actually work together that is? This can only be good for the people
not in the working group.


Now where is that amazing grace MP3...
