Have Nothing. Own Everything.
You must have been living under a bridge like this dude if you haven’t heard of the newest force on the internet, brightnets and darknets. Now, we recently brought you coverage on the the net’s first commercial darknet, but now we’ve got something different to talk about.
myninjaplease.com presents to you the OFF System (download link), or, Owner-Free-Filing. Basically the concept behind the system, as far as we can tell, is that instead of sharing files, owners share bits. Being that there is no complete file being traded, there is no copyright violation. Or essentially it’s like community ownership. This seems kind of ill because the programs "share bits" that are the same, so in some way it’s almost the opposite of pure data copying. If one piece of data appears in two different programs they share it. All the "owned" pieces broken down amount to not much more than senseless noise, so again, no-one is owning anything, especially not complete archive. Oddly enough, this concept seems like it could both revolutionize internet content sharing, and downloading efficiency.
