    BitTorrent Sync is pretty great technology. I’ve replaced most of my Dropbox usage with BTSync. Can’t wait to see how they extend it in the future for mobile.

    “And BitTorrent is a secure, distributed response to the challenge of data surveillance: a way to sync and store information, free from the cloud.” – So BitTorrent is saying that cloud data storage has privacy issues? Says the brand that is synonymous with illegal file sharing? I think BT has some reputation issues to work through before it starts casting those sorts of arrows. I see what they are trying to achieve from a netizen ideals perspective, but they have some corporate brand issues to work out first I’d think :/

      I think the response would be that big established “corporate brands” were also behaving unethically vis-a-vis artists, and engaged in price fixing (ticketmaster). Obviously, this does not justify illegal file sharing, but it definitely puts the Torrents in context.

    This is great and interesting! I think this idea was great to put out for everyone to see, in a unique way it lets the people who are creative and hardworking know that they are being recognized.

    I get the impression the billboards are partially public service announcements/partially ads, based on the little bit I could read from it. If whatever company erected the billboards wants the general public to know about the Internet, its advantages/disadvantages, why didn’t they make all of their words in bold print? It doesn’t seem to make any sense to me.

    I normally don’t like seeing billboards or giant ads, but I certainly like BitTorrent & the message here for sure.
