Hey Everyone, Iím Hishighness420 a.k.a. Lucas. This is my first post so I hope youíll all go easy on me.
Iíve searched high and low on Google, but havenít been able to find an up to date report on the progress that is being made towards making mainstream bittorrent anonymous and decentralized. (i.e. no need for web pages to find torrents) I want to make one thing crystal clear, because Iíve had a problem asking this question on another site where people just canít seem to understand Iím talking about the FUTURE and not the present. I know about Azureus and Tor, and proxies are obviously not a great solution. But what I mean when I say mainstream is end users just being able to download a client, fire it up, and away they go, anonymously and being able to search for, find, and download torrents right from the program a la Napster, but without the obvious drawback of a centralized site that can be shut down by the Copyright cops. And, if anyone tried to track the people using the system they wouldnít be able to get their IP or any other identifiable info.
Sorry I dumbed it down so much, but as I said Iíve ran in to problems with people misunderstanding my meaning.
So, Iím just wondering what progress is being made in this area, if it's being worked on etc.
