[p2p-hackers] hello fellow p2p hackers...

Just a note of introduction... Some of you may know me as the founder of
some SF/Monterey Bay Area ISPs (scruz-net, Tycho Networks) or as the network
architect responsible for designing and implementing DSL.net's IP backbone,
but for the last 8 months I've actually been doing p2p hacking instead of
building ISPs.

What we've been building is outlined a bit at www.amicima.com

Now, I know what you're thinking... the source code isn't freely available
to download from there. That's because I haven't found a good way to pay my
mortgage with open source... so until I can find someone to pay me for my
development time, so that I can pay my mortgage, it'll have to stay
in the hope that I can make a bit from licensing or the app we're building
on top of what we've done so far.

On the other hand, I do believe in sharing information learned, and so I've
joined this list to be a contributor to discussions like "how do I do
UDP and make it TCP-friendly", because "how" is a lot different than
of hours of implementation", and the Internet wouldn't be where it is today
if nobody shared the "hows" and "whys".

In short, "hello" and hope everyone has a good 2005...
