DCIA's P2P Media Summit

Last Thursday on June 22nd, the Distributed Computing Industry Association held its inaugural P2P Media Summit - which consisted of 7 panels and 5 keynotes by some very distinguished guests. The DCIA is a voluntary organization representing all sectors of the distributed computing industry (including content providers, software developers and distributors, and service-and-support companies) and is engaged in developing standards-and-practices to advance this innovative consumer-based distribution channel. Several awards were given out with the Pioneer Award going to MetaMachine (eDonkey), the Groundbreaker's Award to Arvato Mobile, the Trendsetter's Award to LTDnetwork (developer of Qtrax) and the Innovator's Award went to INTENT MediaWorks. The event was held at the Holiday Inn at Tyson's Corner in McClean, Virginia and was well attended with over 100 guests. I will post a summary of my notes soon...In the meantime, HERE's a link to some photos. The organization also publishes an excellent weekly newsletter that I recommend opting into...
