BitTorrent creator Bram Cohen's home page

Bram

Don't ask me how I happened on it, 'cause I don't know.

But it is the virtual home of the master (above).

His page is chock-full of links to interesting stuff, including his blog, his resume, serious writing, musings (the one entitled "The Measure of Success in Life" I found particularly interesting), software he's written, and random things.

Learn from the master.

This past November he was a featured speaker at a Los Angeles awards show and conference organized by Billboard, the music business weekly.

After hanging around the record and movie industry crowd there, he told Wired magazine, he realized "the content people have no clue. I mean, no clue. The cost of bandwidth is going down to nothing. The content distribution industry is going to evaporate."

Cohen said as much at the conference's panel discussion on file-sharing, and the audience sat in stunned silence.
