[REBOL] Re: The dark side of P2P column ...

From: thundrebol:ya:hoo at: 14-May-2001 16:45

From what I've read on the site, RT is promoting a client-side processing technology that leverages the current server-browser model of the Internet. What REBOL/View may have in common with some P2P applications is that it enables "weblications"-- app functionality and connectivity that provides a different user experience than the model supported by browsers. Jim Seymour's technical arguments are a bit thin, but that's beside the point (aren't SMTP servers a peer-to-peer server technology?). Seymour and other journalists are shackling the demise of an application (Napster) to a technology (P2P). If Napster wasn't peer-to-peer but it still let you type the name of a song and listen to it, it would have been just as popular.
